Moving On

Jonah Goldberg opines on the horribly hamhanded Hastert response to the FBI raid on Rep. William Jefferson's office:

The House GOP is under a cloud of corruption thanks to the Jack Abramoff and Randy “Duke” Cunningham cases. This cloud could cost them their majority come November. But when a high-ranking Democrat is caught stashing $90K next to his Mrs. Paul’s frozen fish sticks, the Republicans could have changed the subject from GOP corruption to Democratic corruption; instead, they opted to go with curtain No. 2 and change the subject to GOP arrogance and stupidity.

Indeed, this act may be the last straw that causes the Republican to lose the House. In the 1990's, they lost the White House to the charismatic William Jefferson Clinton. In this decade, they may lose the House by their response to the corrupt William Jefferson.
