It's Not the Crime, It's the Cover-Up

OK, sometimes it's the crime, too. The audacity of this administration has been something to behold. Is there anything President Job and his cronies have touched that has not emerged tainted in some way? Even things that could conceivably, hypothetically be less fishy than they seem - like Cheney's infamous private meeting with energy mavens, or the current Attorney General scandal - seem as sleazy, shady and unseemly as possible thanks to the arrogance, hubris and outright suspiciousness of the brazen administration's behavior.

Of course, past behavior long ago eroded any benefit of the doubt these guys might deserve. Now the biggest assumption one should hold with this most dubious of Presidential circles is not that the group of crooks and morons is guilty but that they're guiltier than we can possibly imagine. Their future lives as collective pariahs is something to look forward to, but I really hope they get their comeuppance while they're firmly in the public eye. The near future feels like an eternity away when the country’s in the hands of such horrible, destructive people. It’s like the whole country is living with cancer.

It reminds me of some Italian friends who had to leave Italy to realise the reach and effect the mafia was having on their country - It is amazing what you become accustom too.
