If the Abramoff scandal isnt enough, it turns out that Randy "Duke" Cunningham wore a wire as a result of his plea bargain, and that is going to net yet other lawmakers. I sure wouldnt want to be a member of Congress this year, as there are about to be many episodes in "As the Culture of Corruption Turns".

This scandal is going to get huge really quick. I am sure that some Democrats are just as guilty as the Republicans. Not as many, but some. Greed will always come back to bite you in the ***.

I wonder if Bush is ready to pardon Duke and Abramoff...

The amount of corruption in our government is truly amazing. I'd like to believe that the American people will learn a lesson about being so gullible to believe politicians' bullshit, but I know that's just wishful thinking.
