Nobody Said the GOP was Honest or Fair

Study: Feds Chase Dems More than GOPers
A study of reported federal investigations of elected officials and candidates shows that the Bush administration’s Justice Department pursues Democrats far more than Republicans. 79 percent of elected officials and candidates who’ve faced a federal investigation (a total of 379) between 2001 and 2006 were Democrats, the study found – only 18 percent were Republicans. During that period, Democrats made up 50 percent of elected officeholders and office seekers during the time period, and 41 percent were Republicans during that period, according to the study.

What's this mean? It means that the Republicans have targeted Democrats for investigations nearly four times as often as a Republican has been targeted. And funny, what's the percentage of indictments returned for each? I'd guess that its substantially higher for the GOP these days. Let's see, Duke Cunningham, Tom Delay, Mark Foley, Bob Nye, anyone associated with Jack Abramoff. Yep, the GOP sure is about honesty and fair play.

The partisan nature of the GOP and the fact that they really do not appear to ever act in the best interests of the nation, only in their own best interest makes me hate the GOP. The small-minded, vengeful, mean and greedy GOP. The GOP is the party of meanness, shallow greed and wanton hypocrisy. This is the party that thinks torture of POWs is just dandy and we should be doing more of it. This is the party that has quietly tried to underfund the reconstruction of New Orleans to send that money to war in Iraq. This is the party that doesn't care what they do to any citizen so long as their pals make more money than they had before.

The GOP is the cancer on our country. They are a parasite sucking the lifeblood and soul out of our country. Just think how brazen they would still be if the Democrats hadn't regained some measure of control in Washington.
