Unprecedented Criminal Enterprise

WASHINGTON (CNN) — The Republican National Committee launched a wide-ranging legal assault Wednesday on more than two dozen political groups working to defeat President Bush.

The committee says the groups are part of an “unprecedented criminal enterprise” to circumvent federal campaign laws and pour illegal soft money contributions into the 2004 race.

Wow. An “unprecedented criminal enterprise.”
I would have thought driving a country nearly to bankruptcy might be unprecedented, or lying in order to start a war that has so far cost 600 american soldiers their lives might be unprecedented, or giving sweet-heart deals worth billions to your own companies might be unprecedented, or bragging about your military experience after being AWOL might be unprecedented, or exposing a CIA operative under deep cover, and hence her contacts, because her husband criticized you might be unprecedented.

I guess what is unprecedented criminal behavior is having the temerity to object to those things.
