A preview of more "conflicts of interest"?

The Great El-ahrairah has stumbled across yet another example of more John "Flip-Flop" Kerry conflict of interest. Most of us can remember how during the primary election season, Senator Flip-Flop stated that he would change the corporate tax code to crackdown on companies doing business overseas avoid taxes. Well, come to find out, there would be tax loophole for companies that are organized a certain way and you have three guesses (the first two don't count) which well-known company that produces ketchup and other food condiments is organized that way. OK, for all the liberals out there who don't know the answer without being told by Michael Moore, the answer is Heinz Ketchup. The loony left screams and hyper-ventilates about Vice-President Dick Cheney and Haliburton, BUT we don't hear anything from them about this blantant conflict of interest. If elected president, you can be assured that Democratic party minions in Congress would funnel all kinds of tax breaks and loopholes to Teresa Heinz's company. You would expect situation like this to show up in third-world countries of South America and Africa (even Canada), but not the US. Yet another reason why voting for Senator Conflict of Interest is a very, very, very bad idea.
