Political: GOP adopts low standards

So, now this administration has been caught paying columnist Maggie Gallagher to hype their marriage initiative. Prior to that there was payola to Armstrong Williams for flogging “No Child Left Behind.” Don’t forget the taxpayer-supported propaganda to push the Medicare Drug Benefit Plan. Does anyone remember the original reasons for going to war with Iraq? In a Democrat-led administration these are called “scandals” and heads roll.

Thankfully, we have lowered our standards to accommodate a Republican administration, or perhaps with God on their side they can do no wrong.
