Ethics, Shmethics!

Members of the Congressional Black Caucus are being investigated by the Office of Congressional Ethics over a junket taken by the former to St. Maarten at the expense of Citigroup. The Congressional Black Caucus's response? "Hey, let's take another look at that ethics resolution!"

The Black Caucus goes on to make the self-serving, but absolutely valid, point that Jack Murtha isn't feeling all that much heat over what are indisputably greater breaches of ethics rules.

Here's my solution: investigate all the bastards.

Hey, guys, be fair. The CBC is the only part of the Democratic Party with any convictions whatever... and the rap sheets to prove it.

Folks, what we have here is an Equal Opportunity Congress of Thieves (EOCT). I'd blame the electorate for being stupid, but no, come to think of it... the EOCT has a propaganda arm formerly known as a "free press". [cue laughter, and/or crying, as seems appropriate]

Rebecca, I believe that you are referring to a "kleptocracy".
