Another Republican to be Indicted? - Bob Ney?

Here we go again. The voters put this set of republicans in power and these guys went wild with it. I haven't seen this much corruption since the Abscam sting. Only this time the republicans stung themselves.

Delay, Frist, Libby, and who knows how many others will be indicted due to connections with Abramoff, like Bob Ney of Ohio, known for renaming french fries, "freedom fries" in the white house kitchen after 9-11. Then there is the investigation into bush's "possibly" illegal wiretapping scheme.

But of course, ask any republican or rush limbaugh or bill o'reilly, and you'll hear that this is all a democrat and media frameup. None of these guys did anything wrong and to indict them is just a travesty of justice. After all, they are republicans and they are in power, so how could anything they do be called illegal. It's all just a conspiracy.

Folks, where I come from, they have a saying, "Where there's smoke there's usually fire." And they have another one, "If it walks like a duck, and quacks like a duck, then it's probably a duck."

I love Bob Ney's defense about taking money for favors from Jack Abramoff. Mr. Ney is working intensely to convince Justice Department prosecutors that he was tricked by Mr. Abramoff into doing favors for the lobbyist's clients.

Poor, innocent politician from Ohio. That big bad Abramoff tricked me into taking money and tricked me again to do favors for his clients after giving me the money. He just went and slipped that money in my wallet when I wasn't looking. And as far as the favors, I thought I was signing something else. I never read what I sign anyway.

Folks, these guys who were indicted are ducks.
