    So should we go into detail about the corruption of Republicans too?:rolleyes:

    The system is corrupt on all sides, thats a fact.

    Edit: ah another typical GOP move, take something that is uncertain, and suggest as often and hard as possible that it was not right.

    "It's impossible to tell if that torrent of cash was an attempt to schmear wavering Democrats -- or just part of the usual cash dump made by leaders on the eve of the June 30 quarterly fundraising deadline"

    Am I missing something, or is this as it seems just a ludicrous and desperate partisan smear? :confused:

    They all stand down there at quarter end and dish it out, it's not like it's one party or the other. Job one is getting re-elected, job two is fund-raising for one's own re-election, job three raising funds for the PAC, job four handing out the PAC money, did I leave anything out?

    Oh, and as time permits, voting on legislation prepared in large part by the lobbyists who help fund one's coffers.

    Ugg got it right. Slow news day at Politico.

    Politicians make me sick. Its almost like they breed these people somewhere closed off from the rest of America.

    I'm fairly sure it'd still be illegal for them to breed right out in front of the rest of America.

    But if they really wanted to, I suppose they do make the laws.

    The Legislative Branch is what is wrong with the American Government.

    It's a huge waste of time and money.
