Man Bites Dog - Washington Times Attacks Republicans

What possible transgression could Idaho wingnut Republicans Larry Craig and Mike Simpson have made against Reverend Doctor Sun Myung Moon? Moon's Washington Times attacks Senator Craig and Representative Simpson in an editorial.
These two clearly think defying the Constitution to buy votes with taxpayers' money is better than taking bribes to steer military contracts toward certain companies, for which Rep. Randy "Duke" Cunningham, California Republican, got an eight-year prison term. I'm not so sure. After all, Mr. Cunningham's favoritism did help create jobs in his district, and at least national defense is a legitimate federal government function.
I'm a little dizzy. Earmarking federal funds for projects in their state is bad, but taking bribes to steer unneeded contracts for unnecessary equipment and services to dishonest businessmen is good.

I guess Cunningham took the oath affirming that Moon is “humanity's Savior, Messiah, Returning Lord and True Parent,” while Craig and Simpson missed the coronation.
