"To announce that there must be no criticism of the president, or that we are to stand by the president, right or wrong, is not only unpatriotic and servile, but is morally treasonable to the American public." Theodore Roosevelt

The Grand Charade

Breaking News: It's illegal for the White House to give payola to reporters. No shit. You don't say. Just like every other crime committed by the Bush Administration, it's not a matter of having enough evidence to make the case. The real problem lies in the utter lack of integrity in the entire political system as a whole - or more to the point, those responsible for maintaining the process. In other words, why would should we expect any honesty from an administration that is built on cronyism to its core. How can we expect Bushco to yield any sense of accountability, when the opposition party has proved be anything but that. How can we expect any retribution, when the press rarely holds the feet of any administration official to the fire. Yes, there have been some instances lately, but it's long overdue and hardly adequate. Until there are any real consequences for the Administration's sins, there will never be any need for them to repent. There is no longer any checks and balances... Only enablers and apologists. It's not a question as to who is on the payola, it's a question as to who is not.
