The MSM Much More Understanding of Corruption When It Involves Democrats

Some of these quotes minimizing Chicago corruption are jaw-dropping. Especially given the media's conniptions about the so-called "Republican Culture of Corruption." (And bear in mind -- Republicans have institutional corruption; Democrats merely have a few bad apples who strayed from the One True Faith.)

Here's David Gregory, urging us all to take chill-pill about government corruption, and stop being such babies about it:

"(A)t the heart of all politics is pay to play. Yes. There's a thin line between expectations and shakedown. But do any of us really believe that the people who raise huge sums of money for a particular political candidate aren't expecting something for their efforts? Do we really believe that a person who is vested with the power to give away a Senate seat isn't going to give it to the person who will somehow do him or her the most good?"

Challenge to lefties: Dig up an equivalent quote by Gregory "contextualizing" and minimizing, say, the Abramoff scandal, or Enron, or Mark Foley.
