Politics and organised crime

Old Joe Kennedy was involved in bootlegging, his son John Fitzgerald Kennedy is alleged to have shared a mistress with a mafia boss and allegedly killed in an organised crime / conservative / military industrial complex conspiracy. Following on this great tradition of crime and politics moving down the isle like a bride and groom at a shotgun wedding is the latest revelations of mafia soldiers funding the Bush-Cheney ticket. You can see it now, graft on waste disposal and reconstruction contracts in the Middle East, taking back the heroin trade from the Taliban and the Feds keeping their noses out of mob business, payola payments getting Dean Martin remixes into the heavy rotation lists on Clear Channel stations, The Soprano's taken off air in a bout of rare political correctness for Italian Americans and the government chasing real criminals like suicide bombers instead. More details from the Smoking Gun here.
