Buying a vote, though mostly done under the radar, has always been a campaign mainstay. But no matter how you spin this one...

"The stars were aligned. It was a coincidence," said White House spokeswoman Dana Perino referring to millions given to mired-in-controversy, congressman, Tom Reynolds (R-NY).

...the White House is taking your money and spending it to elect Republicans.

It's quid pro quo. The White House quids million$ (your tax money) in benefits to your district and you pro your vote for them. At least that's the Rove plan.

Of course, it always comes down to what the Supreme Court's definition of what is legal or not legal which defines what disrepute you can get away with.

But while wadling like a duck, quacklng like a duck and laying eggs that beget cute little ducklings, should lead one to believe that this be a
duck, it was the Supreme Court who said that the theft of the 2000 presidential election was a waddling, quacking, duckling-bearing fish.

And though the fish passed away six years ago, the smell lingers on.

In the last weeks before the mid-terms, the stench is getting worse.

Karl Rove met with a federal disaster relief official and four days later millions of dollars of federal disaster aid was authorized by the
White House which the troubled Reynolds was able to announce just as he was to testify about his irresponsibility in the Foley affair.

Coincidence? Sure. "The stars were aligned."

Here be another star alignment. The Transportation Department transported the federal highway administrator to Ohio last week to announce grants for a transportation hub to help the ailing campaign of Rep. Deborah Pryce (R-Ohio).

Rove is a constant at Interior Office meetings, and while certainly Rove would never make any of these visits political (spittake here), the results of these meetings seem to always end up with Rebublican representatives having money land in their district.

Is it just "stars being aligned?" Maybe. But hopefully the new Congress and Senate will investigate just who is in charge of aligning
those stars.
