Maxine Waters Completely Phoning It In These Days

Picture 1773.pngA bunch of you have been emailing with glee over the fact that while Maxine Waters is not currently at the Bernanke “grilling,” she did get a name check by gal-pal Gwen Moore, who brought up The Rolling Stone Article, which MW had apparently passed on to her (with favorite passages selected and the phrase “giant vampire squid” circled and underlined with a note to “use this”).
Unfortunately, we cannot share in your excitement because honestly? What’s been up with Max these days? She hasn’t brought it in like, forever, and now she’s not even here? Has she lost her edge? Has she been planning something HUGE and doesn’t have time to waste on bearded fruits (Greenspan’s words, not mine) like Bernanke? We need an explanation. And we need this, as a reminder, of the sort of thing we’re looking for:

    She’s busy fighting for her political life. Supposedly, Whitney Houston has just purchased a home in her district and plans to run for office.

    mad max told gwen to give her a shout out while perpetuating the gs conspiracy theory – it’s necessary for her to keep the “mind share” of the american public as she deals with the whitney houston issue…so I’ve been told.

    @9 we get that but we’re looking for an answer as to why max couldn’t come in and bring it herself? gs is her beat.

    no mention of Gwen Moore is complete without a reference to her son, Sowande Omokunde, also known as Supreme Solar Allah:
    “As you may recall, Omokunde was one of four Democratic staffers who pleaded guilty to misdemeanors for slashing tires on 25 vans hours before Republican Party officials were to use them to drive voters to the polls on election day 2004. In April, Omokunde was sentenced to four months in jail and fined $1,000 for his role in the much-publicized caper.”
