Speaking of cracks appearing in the evil edifice, The Guardian have done a good piece on the sheer volume of political lobbying that goes on in Washington, it's opening paragraph is eye opening to say the least:
"America's monstrous system of commercial political lobbying has long needed to be cut down to size. In Washington, more than 35,000 professional lobbyists now spend at least $5bn every year trying to influence the votes of members of the US Congress. It is a system that the former national security adviser Zbigniew Brzezinski has said makes Washington the most corrupt capital in the world."
Speaking of corruption, here is Tom DeLay's resignation letter and a picture of him with Bush.
And can someone please tell me why, last Friday, President Bush decided to flash a Texas football sign at the Economic Club of Chicago, a sign that also has satanic and heavy metal connotations?
