I grew up reading comic books wanting to be a superhero. Comics taught me that those who speak the truth are heroes, all the rest are liars.

Morally Bankrupt Or Fruit Loop?

The g*dless, morally bankrupt GOP... or sugar coated fruit loop? You decide:

According to the Sunday Los Angeles Times, Bush administration's premiere advocate was fired because convicted criminal lobbyist Jack Abramoff was representing one of the countries that most profits from sexual slavery and human trafficking, the Northern Mariana Islands.

Abramoff wanted this Bush administration official fired because the official's anti-human-trafficking agenda - now George Bush's agenda - posed a direct threat to Abramoff's pro-sex-slave client.But Jack Abramoff doesn't have the power to fire a Bush administration official - all he can do is ask. Someone inside the Bush administration had to do Abramoff's dirty work and fire the official on behalf of Abramoff and his client.

According to the Los Angeles Times, that someone was former senior Bush White House official, and now head of the Republican party, Ken Mehlman.

Are there any GOP members left that aren’t liars, criminals, profiteers, or sexual predators? And why don’t the boys at Powerline tell the real story instead of sugar-coating Mehlman as a fruit loop? Even they can't believe the lies all the time, can they? Lloydletta’s Nooz has more, including Mehlman’s whiny denial. Personally, the whole story made me sick.
