In Which I Try to Demonstrate I'm Not Just a Partisan Hack
According to NPR's All Things Considered yesterday, the Democrats in Congress are now doing what the Republicans have been doing for the past umpteen years, charging rich people for access with $2000 a plate dinners and the like.
Quoting The Who, the reporter said, "Meet the new boss, same as the old boss."
Here's what I have to say:
Knock it the fuck off, Democrats.
You promised to clean things up in Washington and make government accountable and transparent. Letting the same interests who were buying access to the Republicans last years buy access to you now is not the way to do it. There are a lot of people in this country who think both major parties are as corrupt as each other and it doesn't matter who is in charge. A lot of people who would be Democrats if you stopped proving them true all the damned time.
So, once again, stop it.
After all, it's for the children.
