You are very correct in your assessment. I was reading the posts at DU regarding this mess, and they are very, very upset and angry.
They thought they had it all wrapped up after Duke Cunningham's conviction. Duke disappointed many of us. Even a fool knows a week is a lifetime in politics.
After McKinney, and now this, the Democrats look like complete jack asses.
"Rather, Kennedy stood before all the cameras and said it like it was. No wimpy tears, nada, stating voters come first. Took the blame like a MAN, a STATESMAN at that."
Uh, was that before or after he said he took prescription drugs, and LIED that he was "on the way to a vote" (he was clearheaded enough to use that one, a grasping at straws involving the DC police not stopping anyone who has to make a vote for certain reasons), or was that before or after he drove while under the influence--potentially endangering lives--and said he "didn't recall", or was that before or after he got preferential treatment from the cops?
It's really amazing how they laughed their asses off over Limbaugh, who never drove under the influence that I know of, but are prostrating themselves over this poor victim.
Add William Jefferson, Democrat Congressman from Lousiana.
Seems he has been receiving bribes. The briber is in trouble with the law. Since Jefferson wasn't brought down simultaneously with the briber, some think that somehow he might skate. I doubt it. Even Pelosi - who is well aware of her "culture of corruption" being on the line against Republicans - said yesterday that the House Ethics Committee should investigate Jefferson.
Oh and that reminds me...Alan Mollohand of West Virginia who was the ranking Dem on the Ethics Committee had to resign from it due to ethical problems - BIGTIME - of his own.
Frick! Michael Jackson's looking rough these days!
Scandals may blunt Dem attacks on GOP (RAT transgressions undercut campaign issue)
