Thought I would check memorandum one last time before going to bed, and I found this gem. Captain Ed, in a long post about the investigation into the alleged corruption of Ted Stevens, comes to the conclusion that the Feds probably will be able to make a case against the Alaskan Senator, and then closes his post with this thing of beauty:
Regardless of whether the FBI can prove corruption, these cases demonstrate clearly that pork corrodes the process of government. When our elected representatives place themselves in positions to have themselves or their families directly benefit from their legislative activities, it becomes a gross conflict of interest. That’s true whether the Senator is Ted Stevens or Harry Reid. The porkers put their own pecuniary interests ahead of the fiscal responsibilities of the nation, and the only productivity we get is in the industry of rationalization.
In case you are wondering, the number of times Harry Reid’s name appeared in the article Ed used as his source is approximately ZERO. The sad thing is he probably doesn’t even realize he is being hacktacular.
