In Washginton...being open and transparent is just a scam

Ah...Washington, where the games are played by both sides and the concept of blaming the other side is almost a fine art. When I came across a comment such as one made by Sen. Jim DeMint in this I knew I had to share what the Washington Times piece from January stated:
Mr. DeMint criticized the unamended ethics bill for revealing a mere 5 percent of earmarks lawmakers bury in complex legislation.

"If we take this bill as it is now," he said, "the public is going to know from Day One that this idea of being open and transparent is just a scam."

A great deal of us already felt that way and a more recent article by Robert Novak in April confirms nothing has really changed...Pork is still the white meat of choice in Congress...

In the end, Washington is only an illusion. . .
