Rare are the moments when Hugh Hewitt and I agree completely and totally on something, but this is one of those times. Hugh has devised a questionnaire for any Republican who wants to be elected to Leadership, and I have got to say, the questions are great:
Thank you for applying for the position of Majority Leader. Please return this completed form to NZ Bear.
Part I. The Money Stuff
1. Does Jack Abramoff have your cell-phone number in his Blackberry?
____. Yes. (You may skip the rest of the questions.)
2. Did you have signature privileges at Signatures restaurant?
____. Yes. (That's it. You're done. And you might want to get a lawyer.)
3. In the last four years, have you accepted greater than $10,000
in campaign contributions from Abramoff clients?
_____. Yes. (Thank you, that will be all. We know it isn't fair,
but elections aren't fair.)
_____. No. (Are you sure about that?)
Read the whole thing. I hope it is not too jaded of me to wonder if anyone in the GOP can successfully complete that form to my satisfaction.
