Get is Straight! The Abramoff Scandal is a REPUBLICAN Scandal

By the time my wife came home from her job last night, I could hardly talk. My voice was almost gone from screaming at the TV set. Didn't matter which channel I watched; didn't matter whether it was cable tv or network (I assume satellite wouldn't have made a difference either, but then I don't have satellite) the talking heads were all pounding the same line, right out of the White House talking points memo. Here's the line:

Abramoff gave money to DEMOCRATS AND Republicans.

bzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz WRONG!!!

Probably the best explanation comes from one of my favorite Bloggers, Jane Hamser at firedoglake. Here's here site:

Jane has been having a running argument with the Ombudsperson at the Washington Post over her claims that the this is a "bipartisan" scandal. I commented to Jane that she spelled out the differences so clearly and simply that it bordered on the "See Spot Run." genre.

Anyway it's well worth the read.

Hi Ed,

Just wanted to let you know that I have been reading your blog articles faithfully. I especially enjoyed this one about the Abramoff scandal being a Republican scandal. I couldn't agree more. I haven't been keeping up with my part of the blog--too busy on the phone sorting out new Medicare drug prescription plans and related hassles. Look for a saga on my rather frustrating but humorous quest for drug coverage in the near future.
