Conventional wisdom has it that the ‘culture of corruption’ undid the GOP’s hold on congress in 2006.
It was the Terri Schiavo fiasco that put the fear of god in many a moderate. It was the beginning of the end for the GOP’s hold on power in DC and across the country.
For what is scarier than congress passing laws to interfere with a family affair?
Well, it’s passing laws to confiscate private property. In this case AIG bonuses, scant weeks after passing a law permitting exactly those bonuses.
I expect this from a banana republic: Lebanon, Venezuela, Russia. But the U.S. of A.?
I'm scared, very very scared.
Or perhaps this is the Democrat’s Schiavo moment?
