    Lobbyist Jack Abramoff says Congress is for hire, and now that the Supreme Court has ruled in favor of "Democracy to the Highest Bidder", America is just another corrupt nation by the wealthy for the wealthy:

    Washington is crawling with lobbyists. But, yeah, none of them do business with Dimocrats.

    Remind me to forward this idiot the email I got from that nice man in Nigeria.

    I rarely watch 60 Minutes but I tuned in last night for a bit while Abramoff was being interviewed.

    All the while Jack is telling the infobabe Leslie Stahl about how Congress is for sale and that Lobbyists write the legislation, all she can do is act surprised and ask if he had no conscience.

    It's like she had no idea Abramoff even existed until they met for the interview. No follow up questions at all.

    I'll never watch 60 Minutes again for any reason.

    He has a book coming out today.

    And of course, the damage control begins immediately:

    Jack Abramoff tells everyone that Congress is for sale but no one wants to pay attention to anything other than football or tits.

    Eh, I'm buying the book rationale. Not the book, though.
