Heard on The Majority Report: "Are you a Republican? A conservative? A dumbass?"

Yep. Just found my favorite podcast.

You know, it occured to me that there might be a silver lining in the litany of Republican investigations and indictments. For them, I mean.

We have DeLay's multiple ethical investigations, Abramoff's fundraising peccadilloes, the cloud still lingering over Rove, Libby's indictment stemming from his obstruction of justice in the Plame leak case, Mike "Brownie" Brown stressing about how far his sleeves should be rolled up to appear hard at work while Lousiana burned drowned, Rumsfeld and Cheney pushing hard to allow an excemption to torture prisoners not to mention an AVALANCHE of evidence that Bush ignored his own intelligence agencies and lied to get the country into a war to the tune of billions of dollars and thousands of lives.

And those are just the big stories. The National News ones.

Without getting too far off my rails here, in what universe does anyone get to invade a country by invoking the spectre of a despot who tortures enemies while simultaneously fighting to allow torture of their enemies? How does this administration have the support of even a single Christian? Of anyone at all with a moral or ethical bone in their bodies?

Where was I? Oh yeah. The silver lining.

These days you can throw a suvlaki sandwich into any crowd and hit a conservative under an ethics investigation. So if you've been abusing your trusted position, fucking over your constituents to line your own pockets while presenting yourself as a god-fearing, bible-reading family man, shoot, might as well get indicted now.

Who is going to notice?

I read and listen to news pretty much all day long, almost exclusively political stuff, and for the life of me I can't keep straight who is being investigated for what.

And this is the party that erupted in moralistic rage when Clinton got his dick sucked. What a joke.
