"I'm sensing shadiness..."

Me, too. Big time. Check out this article in the Washington Post giving the run down on Jack Abramoff - from his early years to his annoying habit of using quotes from "the Godfather" in his conversations. John T. Doolittle, his wife and his former staffers make guest appearances in this tale of meglomania and uncontrolled greed.

"Abramoff is the central figure in what could become the biggest congressional corruption scandal in generations."

Well, I'm inclined to agree with this statement. However, earlier this week I tuned in to listen to NPR's Talk of the Nation because they promised to discuss "corruption in Congress." I listened and learned zippo. The main thrust was this: nothing to see here. Everyone knows this is what's happens in DC. Grow up and move on. This means nothing to the Republican party. Huh? Why did they even bother?

Here's the link to the article: The Fast Rise and Steep Fall of Jack Abramoff - enjoy!
