    Would you believe...

    ...that the Republican Inspector General in charge of overseeing the Iraq reconstruction has uncovered so much bribery and shoddy work that his own party has given him the pink slip?

    Thank God this Congress is almost out the door! :mad:

    It may be a result of something like this, quoted from Rolling Stone:

    "I remember one incident very clearly -- I think it was 2001," says Winslow Wheeler, who served for twenty-two years as a Republican staffer in the Senate. "I was working for [New Mexico Republican] Pete Domenici at the time. We were in a Budget Committee hearing and the Democrats were debating what the final result would be. And my boss gets up and he says, 'Why are you saying this? You're not even going to be in the room when the decisions are made.' Just said it right out in the open."
