The thing that continually amazes me is that some people think only their opponents are capable of corruption. Even the most partisan of papers The Washington Times acknowledges the bipartisan nature of it. Corruption charges burden both parties says the headline. That has been my refrain since I first started watching politics. It's not your party affiliation, it's your time in Washington. Over time, the culture of corruption takes hold and the players learn to game the system. Transparency is the only cure. Eliminate earmarks, make all spending bills and riders available on the internet. Institute a limit of two terms for all elective offices. If it's ok for the President, why not the House or Senate?
