Miscellaneous musings from the perspective of a lefty (both senses) atheist with a warped sense of humor.

I am a geek, but I do have some redeeming social skills. I love other people's dogs, cats, and kids. Snow sucks, but I'm willing to put up with it just to live in Madison.

Traditional Values

What has become of our traditional values?

On the Democratic side, we have Rep. Tim Mahoney (FL) shelling out a hundred grand in hush money, and Rep. William Jefferson (LA) with his fridge full of benjamins, followed by Gov. Rod "Let's Make a Deal" Blagojevich (IL).

Meanwhile, over there in Elephant Land, there's Rep. Mark Foley (FL) with his come-on texting to Congressional pages, Sen. David Vitter (LA) and his cavorting with the DC madam's gals, Sen. Larry Craig (ID) dropping trou in an airport men's restroom, and anti-gay Mayor Jim West (Spokane WA) copping to hanky-panky with boys.

What is the world coming to? Corruption just isn't what it used to be. Why, back in MY day, we could always count on the Republicans to be smelling the greenbacks and the Dems for sniffing booty. Now everything's backwards.

Signs of the apocalypse, indeed.

Thank goodness for Democrat Eliot Spitzer (former NY gov.), a guy with real respect for tradition! No flies on HIM (except for the one he couldn't keep zipped).
