Abramoff pleaded guilty: What do I read?

There's all kinds of online Abramoff action out there.

Michael Scherer has a nice piece outlining the details of the rap.

Joshua Marshall has lots of nitty gritty and original documents.

John Aravosis gets into Chris Matthews' conflict of interest on the topic of Abramoff.

(Disclosure: Aravosis and I are both BuzzFlash.com editors. See Chris? It's easy.)

And this can only be called scandal porn.

And there's hard news from the Post: Just the facts ma'am, Impact on lobbying world, Radioactive Abramoff, The vignettes, and finally a Fairly toothless editorial.

If you were looking for sweet silence; if you wanted an Abramoffless day of reading, go graze in the blissful lala land of National Review Online or The Weekly Standard.

Nota Bene that Campaign for America's Future has announced that it will run political ads in Ohio against Abramoff-tainted Rep. Bob Ney next week.

And if you think it's great that some Republicans are going down, but that it's not your idea of "politics," go read the Southern Poverty Law Center's devastating -- and admittedly ad hominem -- report on Minutemen founder and xenophobe Chris Simcox. And if that isn't your idea of politics, go read Thomas Jefferson's letter to Benjamin Rush, and declare once and for all whether or not the third president was a non-preferentialist.
