A 'Majority' Definition of Ethics

On her way to recapturing control of Congress in 2006, Nancy Pelosi introduced a measure co-sponsored by Senators Harry Reid and Barack Obama that she called a "Declaration of Independence from special interests." Ten months later, on election night, she renewed the vow, saying: "Democrats intend to lead the most honest, most open and most ethical Congress in history."

How quickly the tune has changed. "Ethics" may have served as a populist rallying point for Democrats in the minority, but apparently "ethics" doesn't have much to do with governing in the majority. As the Capitol Hill newspaper Roll Call reported yesterday, Mrs. Pelosi has now enlisted Rep. Howard Berman "to consult with House Democrats on why they should continue to resist Republican demands for an ethics committee investigation" of senior Democrats tied to PMA Group, a defense lobbying firm embroiled in a corruption investigation.

Best description of Pelosi I have read is "Tom Delay in a dress" BTW refresh my memory as to the charges and plea bargain by Newt and why is he on every talking head show with his wisdom as a leader of Congress who took great pride in shutting down government years ago. It's that childish nonsense that has got to stop.

No different than “Morals” serve as a rallying point for conservatives, but guys like Newt, Vitter, and Rush are nothing but a bunch of torture loving adulterers…

Or any number of evangelist conservatives (fill in Reverend) who get caught in (fill in drugs, prostitutes, and/or homosexual relationship) less then moral predicaments…

Topic?...democrat corruption...lib responce?

Blah newt blah rush blah chrisitans blah adulteryblah fundies blah torture blah frickin blah...

But what does anyone expect anymore...

William Jefferson?..doesnt everyone keep 90 grand in the freezer?

Sandy Burgler?...doesnt eveyone stuff nation security documents in their socks?

Clintons adultery?...doesnt everyone screw around on their wife?..with interns? in the oval office?

Chris Dodd?...doesnt everyone get sweet deals from countrywide?

John Murtha?..doesnt everyone take PMA money and funnel them contracts?

Burris? blago and Jackson Jr?...doesnt every one buy their senate seat?

Corrupt democrat judges?...what corrupt democrat judges...never happend..

Hillary Clinton?...doesnt everyone find their law records in the presidents residence ten years later?

I could go on...but there isnt enough bandwidth to list it all...

Cant be an ethics violation if you never had any to begin with...just like a blow job isnt sex...

“Political correctness is a doctrine, fostered by a delusional, illogical minority, and rabidly promoted by an unscrupulous mainstream media, which holds forth the proposition that it is entirely possible to pick up a turd by the clean end.”

"Democrats intend to lead the most honest, most open and most ethical Congress in history."

Wonder if she was actually able to keep a straight face while saying that?
