Abramoff by the Numbers

Cincinatti blogger Seldomwrong examines the angle of the Abramoff scandal no one left or right wants to report. He sees legalized gambling at the heart of the story. Money( and Politics) quote:

But if it hadn't been him(Abramoff), it would be someone else. Let's look at it this way: if gamblers need politicians to decide in their favor, should we expect gamblers and politicians to act honorably in the decision-making process?

He also has some interesting thoughts on the influence of Christianity on American politics. You know the spectre that some see as threatening the whole foundation of the republic's liberty.

The overall argument also hits home in North Carolina. Alas, we must remember we do it all for the good of the children.
