The latest on Duke Cunningham – the CA Republican congress person that got caught with his hand in the cookie jar.

If anyone believes for a moment that politicians aren’t mostly on the take they should look a little deeper.

For example, why would someone with money want to run for political office? Ask yourself that.

Thing is, this crosses party lines. It isn’t just the Republicans that are on the take, the Democrats are too. It’s just the degree to which each party commits such acts that changes. Democrats live high on the hog, whereas Republicans live high on several hogs.

This is why we need real campagin finance reform, and perhaps a break on the two party stranglehold over our political system.

The following are required reading for all who read this blog:

Barbara Ehrenriech’s “Nickle and Dimed” and “Bait and Switch”
Arianna Huffington’s “How To Overthrow The Government”
Steve Squyer’s “Roving Mars”
Steven D. Levitt’s “Freakonomics”

and if you can find it:
Robert Manchester’s “The Arms of Krup: 1587 to 1968″

What? Don’t look at me like that. It’s only about 1,800 pages or so in total. But if you read those books you’ll more understand this blog.
