On Political Corruption and Prayer Breakfasts

Molly Ivins essay about politicians "Impersonating the Lord" is a classic. Here's the conclusion:

So here we sit, watching a great, stinking skein of corruption being fished to the surface of Washington, while the town is simultaneously filled with a great babble about God, prayer and morality. Corruption trails head off in all directions -- lobbyists, wives, jobs, perverting intelligence, outing agents for petty revenge -- all this and a Prayer Breakfast every day.
