Childish Games by Kennedy

You've got to be kidding me.

Let me get this straight. Jack Abramoff has close ties to dozens of Republican lawmakers. He raises hundreds (yes, hundreds) of thousands of dollars for Republican politicians, makes it his business to take Republican Congressmen on golf junkets, and screws Native American tribes out of hundreds of thousands of dollars in fees - and the best Mark Kennedy's campaign can come up with is a weak replay of RNC talking points?

If your eight-year-old said "But mom! He did it too!" would you A) immediately believe him and punish his brother too, or B) ask the eight-year-old if that changed the fact that he broke the rules?

Which is to say nothing of the reality that NO Democratic or DFL lawmaker took money from Abramoff or his firm. Period. End of story.

So the story is this - the rampant corruption in the Republican Party - think Bill Frist's HCA insider stock sale, Tom DeLay's ARMPAC scandal, the entire Ohio Republican Party's ethics scandals re: Taft + Ney - don't think about it! The Democrats do it too! Not only is it a lie, but it's a terrible excuse for wrongdoing, even for an eight-year-old.

But then again, Mark Kennedy never has been one to strain against his RNC master's leash.
