George Bush "Cash for Access" Scandal

As you may have learned to expect by now, it's British journalism doing the hard work for Americans, but a prominent Bush lobbyist has been caught on tape offering to sell access to the Bush administration. He's talking about face-to-face meetings with Dick Check, Condoleeza Rice and other high-ranking officials in exchange for money. There's the possibility of the US administration making "favorable" statements which are beneficial to the the payee.

You know the odds are stacked against anyone having the courage to do anything.

In other news,the mainstream media is finally beginning to use the word "war crimes" in connection with torture.  Again, I've grown so cynical that I know nothing will come of this.  I believe most major Democratic figures are tantamount to traitors and if they follow this up, their own culpability will be established.
