One of the best -- yet saddest -- phrases you could quote from a Katrina victim applies here.
- Come on, now.
We need a Congress that does its damned job, and provides the proper screening for these political toadies and lickspittles who've been handed cherry jobs at our great expense. We need a Congress that does its damned job by providing oversight of government programs and initiatives.
And we need the CBO to start doing its job and working with a Justice Department (that could also start doing its job) and start handing out some subpoenas to find out where all the damn money is going.
We need a new party at the helm of our Legislative Branch in order for any of this to happen. No second-string Republicans need apply to take over for miserable failures of the public trust like Denny Hastert.
Your 15 minutes is about up.
