I deplore the corruption of which Congressman William Jefferson is accused. I agree however with Hastert and Co. that the executive has overstepped its constitutional powers in this case. (See S.W. Anderson's post and his links) But for Hastert and his buddies to get all het up over this case after their acquiescence to Bush's other crimes is absurd. When I opened the Rome News-Tribune this morning to find R.J. Matson's editorial cartoon (below) it expressed my opinion of this Republican Congress (and silent Democrats) perfectly. Click on the cartoon to check out Matson's 'toons from Roll Call and elsewhere. Matson is incisive.
