Wait a second, what happened to that new era of politics the President promised in his successful campaign for his current office? Hmm. . . and didn’t Nancy Pelosi and her Democrats in 2006 run against the Republicans’ “Culture of Corruption” as she dubbed it.
Indeed, after her party captured Congress that fall, she promised a more open and ethical legislature:
The American people voted to restore integrity and honesty in Washington, D.C., and the Democrats intend to lead the most honest, most open and most ethical Congress in history.
And just this morning, as I sip my coffee and wait for my niblings to wake up, I read that even as more “embarrassing revelations come to light” about Charles Rangel, the Democratic Chairman of the House Ways and Means Committee, Pelosi’s Democrats move to save him.
Hope and change, my friends, hope and change.
UPDATE: The Absent-Minded Chairman, Rangel hides income and assets.
