"Lord Acton was right on when he spoke of the corrupting influence of power. Corruption happens in the tiny as well as the grand, on the local level as well as the national, even in something as insignificant as a civic association election. It was 2006 and an upstart retired admiral -- Joe Sestak, a Democrat -- had the audacity to challenge Curt Weldon, the keeper of the Republican keys in Pennsylvania’s 7th Congressional District. Worse yet, polls had Sestak winning." (08/19/11)
