Money, former Texas Senator Phil Gramm once said, is the "mother’s milk of politics."’
Gramm stole the line from California political legend Jesse Unruh. But it remains true enough and when discussing politicians lapping up all this milk we should remember that mom has two nipples: One for Republicans and the other for Democrats.
Most of the news stories about the Meet the Press debate Sunday on President George W. Bush’s domestic spying program centers on comments that both Democrats and Republicans now feel the program is useless because al Qaeda knows the NSA is listening and they won’t use cell phones to discuss their plans.
