Helen Keller's Mushrooms

An excerpt from Will Durst on money in politics.

We are painfully aware that our politicians are, how do I put this delicately, beholden to certain large contributors. A polite way of saying "hookers with the appetites of hippopotamuses in heat." But now the ante has been raised higher than a giraffe's ear. More ghost money means larger favors rewarded with a wider roped off space at the public trough forcing the rest of us to crowd around the short rutted end. Knee- pads are destined to become standard issue behind every Congressional desk. If they aren't already.

Shit, Will, our politicians, particularly Repugs, 'go commando' and kneel right on the floor bare-knee'd to suck money.
