HBO — To Chris Rodkey RE: Political Corruption

Chris: It’s probably not the best idea to start declaring “corruption” a hallmark of either political party. I think both Democrats and Republicans have a pretty rich history in illegalities and misdeeds. Democrats are trying to call the majority the “Culture of Corruption,” but that might not be a great idea. Trying to claim the moral high ground often comes back to bite you in the butt.

DFO: One of HBO’s Gen Yers nails it here. Only a true wingnut/moonbat would believe that his/her side is any purer than the others. The Dems were rotten with congressional corruption before the 1994 upheaval. The R’s are nearing the point of no return now. The best thing that happened to this country was the fiscal responsibility forced on Demo Clinton and congressional Elephants when American governance was fairly split.
