Harrisburg And The BackScratchers

This story from the Lebanon Daily News reminded me of one of my favorite groups when I was in college.

One’s list of both political friends and enemies grows with each passing term in office. It’s important to know whose back one should scratch and who one should expect to reciprocate.

There was plenty of back-scratching, along with an exchange of funds, but Pennsylvania’s citizens never enjoyed any benefit from any of it.

A recent opinion piece by G. Terry Madonna and Michael Young wondered whether Pennsylvania was entering into a new era of corruption — a throwback to the bad old days of state politics some three decades ago or so.

With the new stimulus money there is sure to be an epidemic of corruption that no Merck vaccine will be able to prevent. The FBI is already looking for more agents. Currently the FBI is investigating 2,500 pending public corruption cases, an increase of more than 50 percent since 2003, Mueller said.

(What they do!)

(They smile in your face)
All the time they want to take your place
The back stabbers (back stabbers)

Do you think DeWeese sings that song when he thinks about Eachus???
