For Whom the Bells Toll

The following quotation is from the New York Times today. It is quite a list of GOP "accomplishments" and speaks for itself:

In the House, Mr. DeLay's indictment removes, even if temporarily, a powerful leader who managed to eke out, again and again, narrow majorities on some difficult votes. In the Senate, Republican ranks have been roiled this week by an investigation of Senator Bill Frist, the majority leader, who is under scrutiny for his stock dealings from a blind trust.

Moreover, the string of ethical issues so close together - including the indictment and continuing investigation of the Republican lobbyist Jack Abramoff, who was close to Mr. DeLay, and the arrest of David H. Safavian, a former White House budget official who was charged with lying to investigators and obstructing a federal inquiry involving Mr. Abramoff - is a source of anxiety in Republican circles.
At the same time, the White House is grappling with a criminal investigation into whether anyone leaked the name of a C.I.A. operative, an inquiry that has brought both Karl Rove, Mr. Bush's top political adviser, and I. Lewis Libby, chief of staff to Vice President Dick Cheney, before a grand jury.

And the administration is struggling to steady itself after the slow response to Hurricane Katrina and defend itself against sweeping accusations of incompetence and cronyism in domestic security.

We should add to the list the no-bid contracts to Haliburton and subsidiaries and secretive energy deals, not to mention the destruction of environmental protections and wilderness sanctuaries. And we haven't even touched on 9/11 and Iraq and Osama bin Ladin's non-arrest and the skyrocketing deficit...and...and....

"Send not to know for whom the bell tolls.
It tolls for thee."
