If you are anything like me, you are getting pretty sick and tired of the current happenings in Washington and are getting excited that we are mere weeks away from the mid-term elections. You know the elections where 'we the people' get to kick the lousy bums out...anyway, I've been thinking of all the scandals the Republicans are trying to obfuscate to win in November and realized there have been so many, I've forgotten some. That's where TruthOut.org can help. They have accumulated a list of the top recent Republican scandels for your easy reference.
Bear in mind, as you peruse the following roll call, that these guys are getting busted for this stuff while their party has absolute control over the House, the Senate, the White House and the Justice Department. Huffington Post columnist Stephen Elliot pegged it recently when he wrote, "The fact is if you control the Senate, the White House, and the courts, and you're still getting busted for bribery, stalking children, and money laundering, then something is really sick at the Republican core." [...] Here's the best part: George W. Bush has officially declared that this is now National Character Counts Week. Seriously. You can't make this stuff up. [...] And, of course, the really serious criminal behavior - lying about weapons of mass destruction to initiate a war of conquest that has enriched White House allies while killing untold tens of thousands of people, including almost three thousand American soldiers, for starters - continues to operate with impunity.
Holy smokes, that's quite the list of scandals. But of course, you should focus on the fact that this topic is at focus right before the election. I mean, come on, focus on the Democrats! Do it! This is a terrible ploy on their part. Avert your eyes from the terrible things we've done. I mean, seriously, it's Washington. The Democrats are the bad ones for providing this information to the public! Bad Democrats! How dare they tell America what we've been doing!
BTW, that was a preview of something you may hear on November 3rd in Milwaukee. (you better buy the All American seats, cheapskates)
