One week after The Schilling Show exposed Congressman Tom Perriello’s clandestine call for the firing of U.S. Treasury Secretary Timothy Geithner, the embattled Democrat has cracked.
In an interview with U.S. News and World Report’s Linda Killian, Perriello was interrogated about his then lack of an official, public “Geithner must go” statement.
The boy Congressman responded with crass four-letter candor:
“How f***ing out of touch do you have to be as an economic team?” Perriello asked rhetorically about Geithner and Summers.
There was a time in America when that sort of rhetoric was considered unacceptable from a public servant, “F-bomb Tom.”
It is vulgar.
It is demeaning.
It is churlish.
It is beneath you.
You owe your constituents an apology.
In the bigger picture, it is clear that you are hemorrhaging from a self-inflicted wound—a tangled web of attempted deception. Maybe it’s time, “F-bomb Tom,” to forgo your Congressional spoils (and your dream for publicly funded subsistence) and join Tim Geithner on his way out the back door.
