Politics: The world turned upside down.

When I was little, politics was understandable:

1) Republicans wanted to outlaw fun, but would leave your money alone.

2) Democrats would make fun legal, but would take all your money so you couldn't afford to have any.

3) Republicans got caught in other people's bank accounts.

4) Democrats got caught in other people's pants.


Now politicians can't even get their scandals right: Louisiana has a Democrat Congressman who got busted for a financial scandal, and now they have a GOP Senator caught up in an illicit nookie scandal.

What's this world coming to?

I always heard you can't trust the Democrats with security, Republicans with your civil rights, and neither with your money.

Democrats want a socialist state; Republicans want an aristocracy. Time to get rid of both of them.

Hey, it's Louisiana, who's suprised? We had a gubernatorial election between a known criminal and the Grand Wizard Kleage Krackhead of the local Klan.

The difference is Dave Vitter will likely resign in disgrace (and have his name & party affiliation all over the news) while "Dollar" Bill Jefferson will have to be dragged kicking & screaming from office. And, yes, yet another black eye for this state. At this rate we need to be Argus to have enough eyes to be blackened... Anyone know of companies in either Texas or Tennessee who'll be needing a good computer tech around the end of the year?

I think the Republican politicians always have gotten as much illicit nookie as the Dems - but as aristocrats, the secrets of keeping it secret were passed down from generation to generation...

And the Dems steal at least as much money overall, but they usually have the sense to do it in venues where they don't have to worry about being prosecuted - big cities run by a Democratic machine, or via unions that, under laws passed when Democrats controlled the government, can get away with all kinds of things that would be a RICO violation for any other group.
