Hmmm... So, if corruption becomes widespread enough, nothing will or can be done about it. Gee, doesn't that mean the real question becomes "Why does anyone still trust them?" I guess, if it isn't in the mainstream media we don't have to believe it. That's a great choice for anyone who wants to avoid the cognitive dissonance of having to choose between what is true and what they want to believe. I remember these scandals way back in 1990's when we were discussing Bill and Monica and passing around the Wayne Madison list of Republican scandals. Well, now we know why things moved the way they did then.
