Culture of Corruption Redux

If you listen really hard right now, you can just barely hear the sphincters of a whole lot of Republican congressmen and congresswomen puckering up in fear.  Why?  Because it looks as though we’re going to get to use the old “culture of corruption” mantra again and not overstating the case.

It’s bad enough that the party is already showing very visible and very fragile faultlines made all the more apparent last night during the Super Tuesday primaries, but the GOP’s political fortunes are likely to get even worse as a probe is launched to investigate fraud within the NRCC.

Top House Republicans were told in recent days that a former employee of their campaign committee may have forged an official audit during the contentious 2006 election cycle and that they should brace for the possibility that an unfolding investigation could uncover financial improprieties stretching back several years, according to GOP sources briefed on the members-only discussions.

God, I’m puckering and I’m not even a Republican.  That’s like a sympathy pucker.  But then, the general theme for the GOP lately seems to be chickens coming home to roost, dancing with the one what brought ya, and laying in the bed you made.

Although, the reality isn’t quite as fun as the above platitudes might make it sound.
