"Now, in what some people are calling Punditgate, some well-known talking heads who accepted Enron money are disclosing it and taking heat."
Far-right pundits who go red in the face over "family values" seem to have few quams about who feather's their own nests. Checkout some of Enron's favorites at http://www.usatoday.com/usatonline/20020129/3809354s.htm

"Now, in what some people are calling Punditgate, some well-known talking heads who accepted Enron money are disclosing it and taking heat.

The list includes Bill Kristol, editor of The Weekly Standard, who got $100,000 for serving on an Enron board; Lawrence Kudlow, co-host of CNBC's America Now, who got $50,000 for speaking fees and an Enron subscription to his economic research firm; Wall Street Journal columnist Peggy Noonan, who got more than $25,000 for writing speeches for former Enron chief Kenneth Lay; and New York Times columnist Paul Krugman, who got $50,000 as a board member."

They are all in bed

together. What I find the most disgusting about the Enron situation are the phony politicians who profited from Enron’s payoff--also called political contributions are now the loudest voice for reform. Senator Lieberman whose committee is investigating Enron had Citigroup as it’s biggest lender, and Citigroup is Lieberman’s top donor.

Senator Dodd’s top donor is Arthur Anderson. Bush’s tope Donor is Enron, it never stop. This whole thing is reminiscent to the Savings and Loan debacle that cost American taxpayers many billions. The biggest beneficiaries called the Keating five got generous contribution from Lincoln Saving collapses that by itself cost taxpayers over $3.000.000.000. Squeaky clean McCain got the most bucks from Keating, the Lincoln chief.

These taxpayers’ terrorists are all the same. The corrupt politicians prevent or ignore regulations that would stop the crooks and once the horse is out of the barn, they bravely proposed new rules for our protection--to show that they are really good guys. It is all a charade.
