Abramoff Pleads Guilty to 3 Counts

Abramoff Pleads Guilty to 3 Counts

Looks like (and I only say looks at this stage) the party that ran on the platform to

1- Reduce the influence of special interests in government and "restore" integrity
2- Reduce the size of government
3- Get the US out of 'foreign entanglements'
4- Balance the federal budget
5- Restore integrity

will end up playing the central role in the largest government corruption scandal in modern history while simultaneously doing the opposite of everything they proclaim to stand for...

Reminds me of a Seinfeld episode... It's bizzaro world...

Let's see, under a Repug dominated government we have:

1- Out-right influence peddling.
2- The fastest rate of growth of federal spending in 30 years.
3- A protracted military deployment (creating more anti-Americanism abroad)
4- Red ink for the foreseeable future

and don't forget all the intrusions into the rights of the individual in a free society... and their efforts to enshrine bigotry in the constitution...

The Repug's have pulled off the perfect-storm of governance.
