Popular sentiment turning against your lapdog legislators? Why not dispatch cronies, at taxpayer expense, and maybe even some strategically-timed tax dollars, to do your dirty work?

If you couldn't bully the Attorneys general into politically-motivated prosecutions, you gotta flex your bogus law-enforcement credibility somehow -- while goonsquad Scooter receives a get out of jail free card, of course.

Of course, here's your perpetrator: Sara M. Taylor, another of Bush's young republican women. Remind anyone of Gonzales' young political hitwoman, Monica Goodling?

Where do these people come from?

Although I agree with you 100% on this, maybe we should keep the Fool about investing, and stay out of politics.

Man, keep it coming. If I recall correctly, is was a TMF staffer that turned me on to housingpanic.blogspot.com - I think it might have been you.

Stay on target, friend, your blog is spot-on.

I disagree. The politics of our country have a direct effect on the economy, and our investing, and I believe the feel-good front (hard-nosed and corrupt backroom) chicanery practised by the current administration will ultimately provide great challenges to us as investors.

The reality is that the democrat-controlled Congress hasn’t accomplished much since the election, and they are trying to create scandals where there aren’t any in order to make political gains. The last paragraph of the article shows what a non-story this is:

"I don’t think it is that surprising that during a campaign season when you’re talking about events touting White House programs that Republicans are going to be more likely to appear with us than Democrats," said Tom Riley, a spokesman for the drug policy office. "Teen drug use is down. There has been a lot of progress. We’re very happy and eager to do events with anyone. But it is more likely that Republicans are going to stand up with White House officials to talk about those successes."

What does Scooter have to do with stocks?

And I agree with leohass... while yes, these politics could be linked to the economy, then again so could how my dog grabs the next stick I throw him if you extrapolate it enough.
