The only thing Obama and Biden should talk about is the culture of corruption that is endemic to conservative politics.

Thass right y’all, you heard me say it. People who voluntarily call themselves “conservative” are lowlife scum looking to get one over on tax payers. Earl E. Devaney sez so. (OK. Technically he says that Bush appointees to the Department of the Interior are lowlife scum who use your money to buy cocaine and whores. But come on. We all know that if a thorough investigation of the entire executive branch was conducted no one would get out of jail free.)

This means you Don Rumsfeld and Dick Cheney.

The reports portray a dysfunctional organization that has been riddled with conflicts of interest, unprofessional behavior and a free-for-all atmosphere for much of the Bush administration’s watch.

Yeah. That’s by design my friends. Ever since Cheney convened a “secret” energy task force we knew he was a corrupt, kick back givin’, good ole’ boy. So this comes as no surprise:

In one of the new reports, investigators conclude that a key supervisor at the agency’s minerals revenue management office worked together with two aides to steer a lucrative consulting contract to one of the aides after he retired, violating competitive procurement rules.

But what may surprise many, though it shouldn’t, is that the smug feeling of being beyond the law because you’re in power doesn’t stop at stealing pens from the supply closet.

Two other reports focus on “a culture of substance abuse and promiscuity” and unethical behavior in the service’s royalty-in-kind program. That part of the agency collects about $4 billion a year in the form of oil and gas rather than cash royalties.

Now, a real Sarah Palin style conservative will say that rules against accepting gifts are for pussies and made to be broken. No real man would turn down an opportunity to play paintball on Enron’s dime. But remember friends, these guys have control of your oil and gas. So when Exxon Mobil charges you $5 a gallon for gas cuz they own all the oil fields — including the ones McCain wants to “drill baby, drill!” you’ll start to feel the love.

In fact, these guys who get paid out of your paycheck are already feeling the love:

The investigation separately found that the program’s manager mixed official and personal business, and took money from a technical services firm in exchange for urging oil companies to hire the firm. In sometimes lurid detail, the report accuses him of having intimate relations with two subordinates, one of whom regularly sold him cocaine.

Yeah! I get it when over 30% of my paycheck is gone. I even get it when Bush and Cheney end up only paying 25% of their paycheck in taxes. But I am not getting it from an intern who is also letting me do lines off her sweet, young ass.

McCain is Bush III. Obama and Biden shouldn’t talk about anything else.
