Culture of Corruption -- and Amnesia

Once again the Bushites will count on our amnesiac and servile press to float the idea that the DC Culture of Corruption is just as much a Democratic operation as a Republican. Perhaps Memento- style we should have a certain transcript tattooed on their chests -- this would be the one where the power traders yukked it up over the rolling blackouts they deliberately produced in California, and peed their pants with the prospect of an Enron-Sponsored White House. An excerpt:

KEVIN: So the rumor's true? They're fuckin' takin' all the money back from you guys? All the money you guys stole from those poor grandmothers in California.

BOB: Yeah, Grandma Millie, man. But she's the one who couldn't figure out how to fuckin' vote on the butterfly ballot.

The MSM might object that these jokers were little guys, rare and insignificant bad apples, kinda like the turnkeys at Abu Grahib, but then again, in the GOP, as at Enron, the corruption seems to go all the way up the food chain. In fact, these food chains seem to be helically entwined, like DNA. Further proof of Lord Acton's wisdom, "Power tends to corrupt, and absolute power tends to corrupt absolutely."
