News of Israeli Prime Minister Ariel Sharon suffering a stroke couldn't have come at more convenient time for the embattled PM. Evidence that Mr. Sharon took a $3million bribe in his 1999 campaign have surfaced in Israel, with some there calling for him to step down. I'm not saying that Mr. Sharon deliberately had a stroke, but anyone could see this overweight behemoth was a heart attack waiting to happen.
And so now we see another thing Israel has in common with the US. Corruption at every level of their government. Here in the US Republicans caught in the Jack Abramhoff scandal are scrambling to cover their tails, with House Speaker Dennins Hastert "donating" the bribes he took to charity. Too late, pal, you already took them and if you were really sincere, you would have given the money to charity before it loked like you were about to get caught. In fact, if you were really, really sincere, you would never have accepted the bribes in the first place and turned Mr. Abramhoff over to authorities immediately.
Already, the spin apologist supporters of the criminal Bush regime are making excuses for the wrongdoings perpetrated by their party. Everyone does, it they say, just look at Ariel Sharon.
