Sometimes you wonder how on earth things are so obvious, like the kind of hypocritical and disgusting acts of Mark Foley (R-FL), a pederast who chaired the House Caucus on Missing and Exploited Children. That's creepy and awful in so many ways it's not worth talking about, and I assume everyone, on all sides of the aisle, finds it equally wrong.
You have Tom DeLay, supposedly the bastion of conservative morality, charged with using a childrens organization to channel illegal donations to his PAC, among a litany of other improper things. Of course, he forced a rule change to the Ethics Committee so that he couldn't be held accountable for this for years until it caught up with him.
Now, we have this, and frankly it's just funny in its lack of shock:
Mr Tobias resigned last week shortly after US media told him Ms Palfrey had revealed he had made calls to her business.
He told ABC News that he "had some gals come over to the condo for a massage", but denied having sex with any of them.
Before he stepped down, Mr Tobias ran the Bush administration's programme to crack down on prostitution worldwide.
Boldface mine. I mean, this is just easy work at this point. I simply can't wait for someone to try and tell me with a straight face that this isn't the most incompetent AND corrupt administration in our lifetime. It'd be so funny if it wasn't so predictable and tragic.
