GOP embraces corruption with open arms

Corruption was once considered scandalous. Republicans now find it cause for celebration as they feted Tom DeLay, who traded votes for cash and trips. A writer at BooMan Tribune describes the party. His letter in the comments puts it succinctly:
When Republican Tom DeLay got caught in massive ethics scandals I expected the Republican party, the party that claims to be so moral, to reject DeLay's corruption and demand his resignation. That would have been the honorable thing to do. But to my surprise, the Republican party has instead embraced DeLay's corruption and defended him. Now some three-dozen House and Senate Republicans have held a gala last Thursday actually honoring the corrupt SOB! Even such high-ranking Republicans as House Majority Whip Roy Blunt of Missouri and Republican National Committee Chairman Ken Mehlman are attending this celebration of corruption. How disgusting!

Jeff Gannon was also in attendance. Maybe his boyfriend in the White House, who got him his press pass was there supporting DeLay or maybe his boyfriend is Delay????????????????

I'm leaning towards Scotty McClellan or Karl Rove himself.
