Yet Another Reason Why

From CNN.com:

A former congressman and delegate to the United Nations was indicted Wednesday as part of a terrorist fundraising ring that allegedly sent more than $130,000 to an al Qaeda and Taliban supporter who has threatened U.S. and international troops in Afghanistan.

The former Republican congressman from Michigan, Mark Deli Siljander, was charged with money laundering, conspiracy and obstructing justice for allegedly lying about lobbying senators on behalf of an Islamic charity that authorities said was secretly sending funds to terrorists.

Yet another reason the [[Republicans Are Dead to Me]].

It’s not always the Republicans… but right now it sure seems to be. Sure, over the years, the Dems have had their share of corruption, but right now it’s always the Republicans.

Dobbs: These candidates don’t cut it

From CNN.com:

Remember how excited everybody was just a short while ago that this presidential campaign was the first in 80 years to be wide open, without a president or vice president in the campaign?

Dobbs is absolutely correct. They should stop calling themselves politicians, and start calling themselves pandericians ™. It really is pathetic. Is it even possible for them to actually come up with an original thought, or is that all they can do is try to out-poll the other guy and say what they think the most voters want to hear.

At least Ron Paul clearly didn’t give a damn and just said what he believed. I respect him a lot for that, even if it means that he doesn’t have a chance (and a lot of his ideas are really good, BTW).
