Here we go again...
"The Democrats swept into the majority in Congress vowing to fight the culture of corruption. Bad news for the muckraking biz, right? Thankfully, less-than-squeaky pasts don't appear to be a factor in the Dems' reasoning as they divvy up leadership posts and committee chairs."
Obviously almost everyone and everything is tainted in this Congress and we will have to really clean house in '08. Hold them accountable!
Update: Although Bob Barr has some intelligent things to say about the incoming Democratic Congress. John Aravosis ends the post by saying:
"The Democrats need to balance 'doing the right thing' with 'staying in power long enough to be able to continue doing the right thing.' And in that regard, I think Reid and Pelosi have set the right tone and promoted the right policies. Both are planning to begin with legislative initiatives the majority of the public welcomes. And both have made conciliatory gestures towards the Republicans and the White House in order to show the public that a Democratic victory isn't about retribution, it's about setting our country on the right course. That's smart policy, and it's smart politics."
