When you point a finger

...there's four pointing back at you. That's what I used to hear as a kid, and it has never seemed more true in Amerika today. Evangelical "Christians" have elected quite possibly the most corrupt and depraved government in the history of Amerika; Republicans caught in sex scandals, the hypocrisy of which even shocks Larry Flynt, the publisher of Hustler magazine.
And frankly, I don't give a damn what people are up to sexually--just don't involve minors--until they start dictating what other people may or may not do. After all, that's what killed Jimmy Swaggart--hypocrisy. And you don't want to get me started on why this is an outgrowth of industrial capitalism.
At the same time that this sex scandal is shaking the tree, there's another one going on as well--this one about that old Washington bugbear, corruption. The website has a decent recap of just how filthy these paragons of virtue are in an article titled Imprisoned Cunningham outlines depths of corruption to FBI. $600k in exchange for $80 million in defence work is just one charge in this scandal.(There's a pdf of the FBI transcript here).
But the question is, is anyone on the "Christian" Right even noticing? Or will they continue to hide their heads up their asses while Amerika completes it's plummet into fascism and slavery? (Oh yeah, indentured servitude is back in fashion amongst the upper classes in Amerika).
