A 2008 campaign slogan for Democrats: "Reinstate the rule of law!"

BTW, some of my best friends are republicans. But I take issue with these Republicans in Congress and in the WH. Interestingly, so do they.

I have long considered myself to be a moderate Republican, but I am changing my registration. The term "Republican" is no longer meaningful, except to denote greed and any lack of compassion. I have to laugh when I think of Bush's early "compassionate conservatism" slogan!

Former House Speaker Jim Wright had an excellent piece this morning in the Fort Worth Star Telegram. I hope this link will work: http://www.star-telegram.com/242/story/76575.html. Wright often writes rather statesman-like pieces, but I thought that the one today was particularly appropriate.

I'm sure you mean Mark Foley instead of Tom Foley, who was a respected Democtatic Speaker of the House.

I'm sure you're right.

Seeing Tom Delay on Charlie Rose bellyaching about being persecuted by Democrats, how public education is unconstitutional, and how events at Virginia Tech would have been different if all the students and professors had been packing heat, made me wonder: what's happening with Poor Tom Delay's trial???

TPM is reporting the FBI is going after another Republican from Florida in connection with Abramoff. And a golf trip.

Maybe Abramoff actually is co-operating. We've seen a lot of activity in the last couple of weeks.

more from Cillizza:

Look at exit polling from 2006. Roughly four in ten voters (41 percent) said "corruption and scandals in government" were extremely important. Of that group, Democratic candidates won 59 percent, while Republican candidates won 39 percent. Those for whom corruption was a big deal tended to strongly favor Democrats as the party of change. So corruption was a key ingredient in that deadly mixture for Republicans last November, but it would be a mistake to call it the only or even the main ingredient.
