Insincerity, Thy Name is GOP

Headlines like GOP Proposes Lobby Limits appearing across the country convey the impression that Republicans are shocked, shocked and amazed, to discover that there is corruption in Washington even after those evil Dems were driven from power!

Well then, here are a few other headlines we may expect to see any day now if the same spirit spreads:

  • Gambino Family to Clean Up Mob

  • Foxes Association Announces Chicken Coop Security Plan

  • Tax Lawyers Seek Simplified Code

  • Pedophile Priests Join to Found New Children's Summer Camp in Remote Mountains

  • Sex Stars Promise Family Fare

  • Bush, Cheney, Rumsfeld, Rice to Personally Investigate Administration's Lying, Spying, Torture and Corruption

  • Elementary School Bully Offers Peace to Schoolyard

Just face it. The Republicans have never been interested in actual government, at least not in any part of government that doesn't bear arms, spy on people's bedrooms, or give away tax favors to corporations. So it only took them 10 years in power to institutionalize corrupt shakedowns of people seeking government favors.

If you think this qualifies them to clean up the lobbying culture (perhaps on the basis of "it takes a thief to catch a thief") I can sell you some fine shorefront land in Brooklyn and Manhattan that is amply supplied with a trans-riverine edifice...
