Republican Shame

Revelations of Senator Bill Frist's involvement in an HCA insider sell-off should come as a surprise to no one. No ascendant party has been this fraught with financial abuses since the grand old days of the Teapot Dome Scandal!

On top of Frist's corruption, we have psychotic lobbyist Jack Abramoff's sequence of misdeeds and relentless abuses of congressional favor.

Oh yes, there's also Thomas Noe, who somehow lost $50,000,000 of the Ohio Pension fund in bad coin deals... I refuse to call this event "coingate". Enough with the gates already.

While we're at it let's not forget the blatant cronyism evidenced by the now deposed FEMA director Michael Brown's appointment! A real mission for bloggeurs: Let's "smoke out of their holes" every Bush crony currently serving where we would be better served with a qualified diplomat/bureaucrat.
