Wake up the watchdogs

It isn't just the news media that have been silent about the links between Jack Abramoff, Tom DeLay, and Wisconsin Congressmen Mark Green and Paul Ryan.

The goo-goos -- the "good government" groups that put out the inflammatory news releases and provide the juicy quotes, full of insinuations that every dollar raised by a campaign is at least a venial sin -- have not uttered a peep. The media refer to the organizations as watchdogs, but they are asleep in their doghouses on this one.

Will we hear from the Wisconsin Democracy Campaign's Mike McCabe? Isn't he concerned, at least, if not outraged, by the flow of money from DeLay to Green and Ryan? Doesn't he think they should give it back? Or is he too busy peddling questionable claims about Jim Doyle to get around to this long-standing question?

And Common Cause? Where are you, Jay Heck?

The silence is deafening.
