01/13/2006: Thought for the Day:
In the rush to return Abramoff money [lawmakers] are setting a standard they don't believe in. Acting House Majority Leader Roy Blunt's spokesman said the Missouri congressman returned Abramoff's money because it was "not given in the spirit in which it was received." What spirit did he think moved Abramoff? The MacArthur Foundation spirit? Christmas spirit? School spirit? Political money is given with strings attached. Blunt knows how the game works: That's why he's acting majority leader.
