WorldCom Gave More to Republicans

During the 1999-2000 election cycle, WorldCom gave more than 70% to Republicans, especially Bush. Lately, they've been spreading a little more evenly, unless you count the fund raiser this month where Bush raised $28 million, $100,000 of which came from one of the events vice-chairmen, WorldCom.
Republicans quickly tried to distance themselves from the scandal, as Bush called for an SEC investigation into the matter. Bush renewed his call for new measures to hold corporations accountable and promised to crack down on the corruption. But the president does not plan to call on his party to return the $100,000 check WorldCom wrote for the $30 million fundraiser.
Of course not. Has he returned Enron money? Will he investigate Cheney's role in the Halliburton fuzzy math? Will he investigate Kenny Boy? Will he investigate Army Secretary White? I think it's time we took a good look at Alcoa and Treasury Sec. Paul O'Neill.

Cheney's Halliburton Scandals

I just went to look up a link for "Cheney's role in the Halliburton fussy math" so I looked up "Cheney Halliburton scandal." I realized that this is a new one. The other Cheney Halliburton scandal is selling to Iraq and Libya! So I had to search for "Cheney Halliburton accounting scandal." Wow. There are so many scandals going on in this administration that I have to be more specific when I search for one!

Politically Incorrect

Last night, on the penultimate Politically Incorrect, the token conservative, Genevieve Wood, tried to blame Clinton's affair and lying, without mentioning Newt's, or Clarence's, or, well, she tried to blame Clinton for the current corporate malfeasance. Typical conservative; when faced with an argument you can't win, just say, well, what about Clinton? I'm sure we'll hear lots more of the same crap from Ann Coulter tonight. I'm sure Ariana can handle her. And while Coulter is spewing her crap tonight, remember John O'Neill.
