War Mongers concerned that profiteering might be in jeopardy? With great effort and concern War Mongers have attempted to protect their lucrative contracts with Chimpy, Trusty, Rummy, and the pure as driven snow, brand spankin' new Iraqi government through the efforts of their bestest pals in the hallowed halls of Congress. To recognize these efforts, Mother Jones, has created the Didly Awards to recognize the incredibly important efforts that Congress is focusing upon. With billions in Iraq construction contracts pending last year, Sen. Dianne Feinstein (D-Calif.) borrowed World War II-era language for an amendment that would criminalize war profiteering. But the Republican leadership not only removed it; they also raised the limit on no-bid contracts from $7.5 million to $200 million, inaugurating a new era of raiding the U.S. Treasury, all of it legal. So, I once spent an hour trying to find a q-tip that I dropped, would that qualify?
