One Down. Many, Many More To Go
Let us hope that the spectacle of Randy “Duke” Cunningham, the Republican Congressman from California who resigned his office today, shamed to tears in front of national news cameras is the first in a long line of confessions from the crime laden Republican leadership still to come (Crooks & Liars has the video, it’s fun viewing). It doesn’t matter if their red faced sobs are the result of loosing their ill-gotten gains or for their fear of prison, as long as they are forced to suffer the indignity in public.
Some of them will choose the Tom DeLay route, clawing and scratching all the way down, but that’s fine too. DeLay will be throwing his own feces at prison guards soon, instead of shitting on our country and wiping his ass with the Constitution, not good for the guards but hey, they’ll be taking one for the team. I imagine Cheney, Rumsfeld and Rove will follow DeLay’s lead, but others like Roy Blunt, Bill Frist and Denny Hastert all have Jimmy Swaggart moments in their future. Let’s hope that CNN runs them all on a continuous loop for our viewing pleasure.
