The Growing GOP List of Shame

One of the most exciting things about Les Enragé is the fact that we are one of the most commenter-friendly blogs anywhere. Not only have we tweaked Haloscan to provide an open look and reduced eyestrain by colouring the background judiciously, but we love our thread denizens to the point that their ideas often make it into posts, and on a number of occasions their comments have even become posts.

Well, this post may be the sine qua non of that principle. A commenter known as Macaca Doodle Doo has presented us with the idea of updating the famous List of Shame provided by Sans-culotte (our blogspiration, if you didn't already know that) in one of his greatest posts of all time. He has even provided us with an updated linklist so that we can present the result to you. A normal hat-tip being inadequate, I have taken the extraordinary measure of donning a yarmulke, a ballcap, a toque, a fedora and a stetson, just so that I could tip them all in succession. (Note: since the method of presentation will cause your browser to 'go wide', all links are below the fold.)

Without further ado, I present the updated

UPDATE: On a lighter note, h/t Nigel Elliott from the threads. Thanks also Pam.

UPDATE 2 - (Sept. 12, 2007): Bill W. of
Just-A-Bill has started a new blog dedicated to keeping this list updated (and lamenting the fact that I haven't been doing such a good job at that mea maxima culpa!) Thus far he just has links to other sites, but I'm sure that will change soon. For current Republican corruption related stories, I strongly recommend you visit TPMMuckraker daily. It seems there is ALWAYS a new story of Republican corruption breaking, and Josh Marshall often leads the pack in coverage.
