Paging Lord Acton

The hubris of the Miserable Failure administration and the thugs in the GOP has grown exponentially since the election. From restocking the Cabinet with trusted White House insiders to the DeLay Rule, the past two weeks have been a whirlwind of evidence of the truism that while "power corrupts, absolute power corrupts absolutely."

Gone from today's GOP, whether in the administration or the Congress, is any semblance of free thought. The moderates are being purged from the Congressional wing by a newly emboldened American Taliban (I refuse to use the term Religious Right for a group that is neither right, nor true to its own faith's tenets). And the group think of the White House staff is being exported to the Cabinet.

With nary a dissenting voice it is only a matter of time before the GOP finally over-reaches to such an extent that they blow what little mandate they may have had from the election.
