Abramoff...and the end of the GOP Headlock

The problem with Abramoff, from a media standpoint anyway, is that his name doesn't translate easily into _____Gate. If it did, the scandal would be much easier to pigeonhole.

As it stands today, the number of men inside the Beltway who feel their scrotum tugging close to their loins has increased exponentially. There are a load of GOP "wise guys" who are now facing total ruin. Ney is just the beginning. Hastert's mea culpa comes too late. The next few months won't change America, but they may tip the balance of power in DC. While Democrats were on the Abramoff payroll too, it was, for the most part, a GOP party.

It is time for the Democrats to come up with there own "Contract With America" and sing it loud and clear. The GOP is going down hard...and your average American, who desperately wants to believe in SOMETHING, is just dying to hear from the Dems!

Maybe the system does work.....?

Oh, by the way, is it just me, or did Abramoff, in his black trenchcoat and fedora, look like an overgrown version of "Spy vs. Spy?"
