CORRUPTION....Let's see. We're now investigating (a) the outing of Valerie Plame by senior Republican officials in the White House, (b) a possible bribery offer by the House Republican leadership to congressman Nick Smith, (c) the pilfering of memos from the Senate Judiciary Committee by a Republican staffer, (d) possible illegal use of funds by the Republican majority leader's PAC, and now (e) the deliberate withholding of information about the cost of the administration's Medicare bill by a senior Republican HHS appointee.

Did I miss anything? I know it's common for parties that take power to eventually become corrupt and get thrown out, but doesn't it usually take longer than three years?
