I'm truly disgusted by what I just read. Congratulations on being the political equivalent of the battered wife who just knows it really will be different THIS time!
I usually offer quite a bit more discussion and analysis, but I see it would be totally wasted on someone who wrote that and isn't obviously ashamed by the words and rationale given.
EDIT: The last paragraph drips with bitter irony that almost compels me to tear it apart. Almost. Suffice it to say that by closing with a pitch for money and claim that standing on principle is futile tells me you're starting to get the hang of politics. Had RP taken that path, 95% of this site's users would still be asleep.
