    Talk about cold, hard cash:

    Umm, maybe. But I'd just love to hear another plausible explanation for why that money was in Tupperware in the freezer. :rolleyes:

    i suppose this is the different between corrupt dems and corrupt repubs -- the corrupt dems save their ill-gotten gains.

    Yeah, I mean, I only keep like $5,000 in my fridge. Just kidding. I don't have my new fridge yet. Stupid Sears.

    Got to love this Congress of Prostitutes, working hard for everyone....but the American people. Both parties are corrupt as hell. Vote out all incumbants is the answer.

    I can take this phrase two ways:

    1. Quite a few people do love congress involving prostitutes.

    2. If we did have a Congress of prostitutes, you would think the opinion polls would be higher.

    As to the topic, I wonder if the Feds froze his bank accounts while continuing their investigation?

    Easy! His accounts had been frozen by the investigators. :)

    I'm all for a Congress of strippers. They don't hide anything.

    I don't know, but I predict the congressman is going to spend some time in the cooler.

    Sentences like this are why it is so humorous to understand grammar. Thanks for loading me up with this image. Now instead of seeing the American people being ignored, I have the image of bare-assed, bent-over congressional representatives staring back with a wanton expression, and piles of money in the hotel room mini-bar; as foreign business exectives ask, "How much will a tariff repeal cost me?"

    Priceless!

    I've had some green stuff growing in my fridge from time to time, but nothing like that!

    Ahh but if we've learned anything from the GOP, it's that any corruption scandal can be deflected with charges of "a politically-inspired prosecution" and "the other side does it too" right? :D

    But rather than treading down that well-worn path, instead I say - This guy needs to be in jail, bad. Abuse of the public trust is simply unconscionable. Investigate the hell out of him, his staff, his kids, his business connections. Make an example out of him so that others aren't encouraged to follow in his steps.

    Then take that same level of investigative vigor and apply it to Bob Ney, to Tom Delay, to Jack Abramoff, and to any other Congresscritter, lobbyist, and/or contractor seeking to enrich themselves at the expense of the public good.

    Wouldn't the Tupperware keep the money from getting freezer burn?

    gee, look who's suddenly concerned about the separation of powers.

    my message to the leaders of both parties:
    1. clean your ****ing houses
    2. apply your concerns about executive power abuses to your constituencies' rights, too

    Heh... suddenly privacy rights and the seperation of powers become important when it gets personal. Interesting...

    As a further show of faith in the administration and it's actions, I'd like to see the GOP members of the House and Senate sign waivers permitting the phone companies to release all their phone records to both the Democrats and the public. Call it a show of support for the president's invasion of the public's privacy, or call it putting your money where your mouth is. You've got nothing to hide, right? :p
