Great Moments In Republican Hypocrisy

December 15th, 2008at 07:35pm Posted by Eli

Hey, remember Richard Shelby (R-AL), fearlessly crusading against the government bailing out private industry?  Apparently it depends on the industry…

Alabama Senator Richard Shelby, one of the infamous politicians of the auto bailout fiasco, recently obtained $160 million for the fishing industry nationwide. A portion of this amount is headed for the Alabama fishing industry for reasons they have no control over. Shelby states on his own website and we quote “This funding will provide much needed assistance to an industry that is a vital part of the Alabama economy”. The taxpayers of this nation should be aware this is not a government approved loan to the fishing industry but rather a handout.

Maybe the Big Three need to diversify into fishing, or start giving their cars aquatic names.  Or establish more of a presence in the South.
