The scandal of scandals.

From the Dailykos: Phony Front Companies Cycle Millions Back to GOP!

I'm not going to add much commentary here, this summary teaser should suffice:

The Duke Cunningham scandal goes much deeper than just the $2.4 million in bribes being reported by the media. There is a lot the media is not telling you.

Ever wonder why the Republicans have SO much money in every national election?

And what did the Dukester do to get his Rolls-Royce, anyway? Whose Lear Jet was he flying around in? The answers to those 3 questions turn out to be The. Biggest. Scandal. Ever!

The. Biggest. Scandal. Ever! on the flip!

Go on, you know you wanna get the scoop!

And they say bloggers are not journalists. Ha! The blogsphere is a bit noisy, but the good stuff never fails to rise to the top. Having been peer reviewed, commented on and contributed to, the top stories reach acceptable depth and credence far more quickly than they do via the traditional media channels these days. '06 is shaping up to be a very, very interesting year indeed!

Perhaps undoing scandals like these will bring elections closer to parity, allowing other parties a solid chance at some seats. Given the high disapproval ratings we are seeing today and our founders desire for a representative government, it seems only right for some gains to happen next year. Here's to hoping!
