    But I'm not really trying to defend Democrats. What I'm saying is that it is the SYSTEM that is corrupt and that corrupts those in power.

    And Delay is still up for state charges. Don't forget that. And Jack Abramoff, regardless of whether Delay was involved to a criminal degree, was still a major player in Republican circles.

    This doesn't justify Democratic corruption. It just points to a broken system, moreso than a broken party.

    Oh, I wasn't looking at your name. I thought you were someone else and your overt partisanship was shocking. Then I looked again.

    All Republicans are good. All Democrats are evil and should go to jail right now.

    Got it. I'll leave you back to your little fantasy world.

    Never said that, and again... nice try.

    I was simply stating those that accused the R's of a culture of corruption have corruption all over their face.

    Also a cute response the Abramoff portion of my thread.

    This is what we call, attack the messenger, don't debate the subject honestly tactic.
