Sometimes when I read the Daily Kos, I am just shocked by what I find. This is one of those times:
Some day, once the current GOP dominance collapses under the weight of their corruption, we’ll have Dems playing the same dirty game. Republicans rally around their sleaziest bad-government practicioners, as we know the elephant flies above the Stars and Stripes to the typical Bush/DeLay apologist.
The moral imperative behind a “clean government” crusade is self-evident. But there’s also a practical reason to oppose corruption even amongst Democrats — it’s a sure-fire way to lose elections. Rampant Democratic corruption cost us Congress in 1994, and we’ve yet to recover. And continued Democratic corruption has made House Dems wary of charging ahead with the “corruption” theme to hard, lest some of the current members get snared in the web.
Good. Let those who sit in Congress enriching themselves go down. They are supposed to be doing the people’s business, not their own. Unlike the GOP apologists, I consider corruption a non-partisan issue. I’d like to see them all thrown out with the Capitol trash.
I concur. And for extra fun, it even comes with a dig at Kerry at the end.
