    I may expand this in a diary but listening to CNN last night I realized that the fall-out of the Foley scandal may revive the whole "culture of Corruption " idea in the American public's head in a way we hadn't realized: It seems that all those outrageous Republicansabuses of the Ethics process may finally come home to haunt them in one large connected story line that has nothing to do with Jack Abramoff

    After their report on Hastert's meeting with Foley, the reporter eneded the report with a sentence to the effect of .  "this isn't the first scandal that hastert has failed to take action on"  and then proceeded to point out that Hastert had taken no formal action against DeLay, Ney, Cunningham and other Representatives accused of ethic violations in the past on his watch.

    And as the words hit my brain I saw the frame as clear as Day:  "Do-nothing Denny and the rest of the Republican leadership had time and again turned a blind eye to corruption; so why should the Foley case be any different?"

    And THAT of course raises the Pregnant question: "if Denny has winked at scandal this often,  what OTHER corruption is he willfully ingnoring in the ranks?"

      This will bring to the mothers and fathers out there who have been voting republican, reluctantly, the realization of what they have been ignoring. If this is reported correctly it will tie the whole mess into a neat bundle to be thrown out in nov.
