BloggerRadio.com: The GOP's spreading plague

Good read. Joe Conason is right; the incidents and reports are too numerous to write about. I tried a Scooterlibbykind of collage of pictures approach, but it only scratches the surface. Hell, I left out characters with names like "Brownie" and "Scooter" of all people! Those nicknames, and Karl Rove's mug shot, and it starts looking like the wall of the local post office!

To be an honest Republican these days must be to wonder what awful revelation is coming next -- and how the Grand Old Party, which once claimed to represent political reform, became a front for sleaze, corruption and cynical criminality. Across the country, from the Capitol to statehouses, Republican officials are under indictment, under investigation or under suspicion.

This week's headlines featured the indictment of Rep. Tom DeLay and the probe of Senate Majority Leader Bill Frist, but the infection of venality among their fellow partisans is now reaching epidemic proportions. So widespread is the plague that keeping track of all the individual cases, and their increasingly baroque variations, has become a distinct challenge."
