P.U...

Rep. Gary Miller (R-Calif.) Closes A California Airport, Securing Land For His Business Partner...

Smells rotten to the core.

Just say "No thank you!" to graft.

Typical of politics, at all levels, in America today. It's all about the wealthy and how much they can get by with. The really sad thing is the pretense that they are doing nothing wrong.

Unfortunately, we the voters just sit back and don't take action at the polls to say we just won't tolerate this anymore. After all it is our tax dollars they are using for their benefit and that of their wealthy friends who buy influence with campaign donations.

Corruption, Corruption, Corruption! You just posted an article of the sentencing of Abramoff. Now, we are introduced to another crook to the list: Miller in California (keeping an eye on Congressmen Dana Rohrbacker and Steny Hoyer). Congress is certainly for sale.

More in the Biloxi news:

1. This should be the bonehead of the day award from Howie. From Thinkprogess.org:

"Howard Kaloogian, who is running to replace disgraced former Rep. Duke Cunningham, argued that the news media was focusing on the bad news in Iraq "because many journalists are opposed to the U.S. effort to fight terrorism." To prove his point, Kaloogian put a photo up on his website to show that Baghdad "is much more calm and stable than what many people believe it to be." Attytood blog's Will Bunch quickly spotted the photo as a fake, and asked his readers to "see how many, um, mistakes you can spot in the photo." Other blogs, such as Talk Points Memo, Echaton, and Daily Kos continued the "ace detective work," "as eagle-eyed experts proposed alternative locales, with Turkey a likely suspect." Ultimately, a commenter on Daily Kos pinpointed the locale of Kaloogian's picture as the "Istanbul suburb of Bakirkoy." Kaloogian soon admitted the photo was inaccurate, but told TMP Muckracker, "You're being really picky on this stuff. It's not that big a deal. It was a mistake. I'm sorry."
Yeah, right!

2. My favorite: The Gerbil's response on Global Warming

ENVIRONMENT -- BUSH SUGGESTS GLOBAL WARMING MAY BE 'NATURAL': "Yesterday, while speaking before Freedom House, President Bush was asked about his administration isn't taking immediate measures to address global warming. Bush answered, 'We -- first of all, there is -- the globe is warming".

And there you go, folks. I will say again, folks, the Gerbil thinks that Global Warming is warming the globe. Can't take that man anywhere without making an ass of himself!

Former Fed & Biloxi,

I could just see Fitz or someone showing up with a entre'e about 5 feet across and a uniform reading "JUSTICE IS SERVED COLD TURKEY!"

That would be the best thing to end this crooked graft, give them a frozen head of lamb and say that they can enjoy all these fine delicacies in the big house.

All due to getting caught in the worst corruption scheme anyone's ever seen, my god there's not enough horror stories you can write about the people in this congress especially those you mentioned!!

8-D

It's going to get busy in the court rooms soon!

anon@12:30...amen! What is so amazing is the absolutely brazen nature of these folks and the way they do business (our business) It's as though their consciences have been so dulled that they don't even consider their actions are accountable to those that have elected them.

What is most appalling is that the congress passed the first ethics reform bill yesterday. It was full of rhetoric, but no teeth. I like the idea of an ethics board outside the congress, accountable for their actions and not self regulated. Boy, would there be some serious "come to Jesus" going on.

Lux Luther said land my son land. Well he was right. Notice how all the crooks invest their stolen money in land. How many criminal elected officials are here in California? Dukes gone I hope others will follow. Everyday theres a new name that pops up. Looks like the Republicans has a few Dems friends to help with the corruption. Voters should keep and eye on everybody.

8-D,

The frozen lamb should be smacked in the head to all the crooks after sentencing when they should have said "no" to graft! They will get the message! And I certainly woudn't want the crooks to enjoy the fine delicacies in prison. My recommend menu of din din in the cell: food from the garbage or upscale the meal for good behavior to Meals on Wheels!

Folks,

When I think of all the things I did over my 32 years as a Fed to make sure any dealings with contractors, etc. were clean, I just can't really imagine the things going on today.

We used to make sure we put money in the coffee fund if we even had a cup of coffee at a contractor's facility.

And the financial disclosure statements I have had to fill out - even on a Fed's salary.

Boy does our government need to be cleaned up.

GO FITZ!!!!!!!

Forget the frozen lamb. Put them in a Haliburton facility. The usual contaminated water and rotten food that they hand out to the troops will be good enough for them.
