Since the summer-vaccations are over- it's time to get down to serious stuff..
It's widely known that Washington procurement lobby circles are a great place to work- you get gifts,sex,and cocaine ..
I'm sure we'll hear more about that matter through the usual news-papers indepth -just the basics :

All the folk I know are scrupulous about:
US federal employees are forbidden from receiving gifts valued above 20 dollars.

And careful not to use Government envelopes on non G business. So never met this lot - thank heavens!

Sex and Drugs? Why not, because the pipeline is Gods will!! Here is Sarah Palin view:

Quote:
Palin acts as though all political decisions emanated directly from a divine resolution -- and as if the Republican understanding of this resolution were the only one that could be correct.
On the issue of the gas pipeline as well, Palin linked political and economic business with her personal concept of divine providence, calling on her audience to pray for the controversial planned $30 billion pipeline project. “I think,” Palin told the audience at the Wasilla Assembly of God, “God's will has to be done in unifying people and companies to get that gas pipeline built.”

IMO, any politician who dares to claim his political agenda reflects the will of god should be excluded from running.

Incredible they can get away with it in the USA! God is everywhere in their speeches. Sometimes I wonder if I see a politician talking about his agenda for the future, or a reverent preaching from the bible to the Sunday masses.

Over here in 'Old Europe', if politicians dare to mention god in political debates, there basically finished and rightfully so...

If elected, she only will have a bad influence on the (at the moment, anyway bad) reputation of the US.

Amazing! Everything here is turning into an anti-Palin thread even if the opening poster didn't mention her at all.
