"There is no distinctly American criminal class, except Congress." -Mark Twain

In a strange move, both the Rs and the Ds are livid that the FBI raided the congressional offices of Rep. William Jefferson, D-Louisiana, (who may have accepted substantial bribes). House speaker Hastert spoke directly with the president, so, the president steps in an orders the documents sealed as a cooling off period as Congress demands this is a separation of powers issue. Some predict it will go to the SCOTUS.

Aha. So Abu Ghraib, Tom DeLay, and NSA illegal wiretapping aren't enough to merit a proper congressional investigation. But a raid, with a warrant, after the videotaping of a Congressman taking a bribe that leads to uncovering 90 grand in the fucker's freezer? Well, now the shit's hit the fan!

I'm quickly coming to the conclusion that I absolutely loathe almost every last politician in DC. Reinforces my cynicism that our present government, well rooted though it is, has become so corrupt now that it is simply not worth trying to save. :P
