virtue cast aside
and perhaps that was true -- in a more ethical time.
clearly, however, that time has passed.
this should be a clear indicator to the rational observer of how far the house of representatives has deteriorated from any ethical standard. the new modus operandi is this: if the rules are inconvenient, change the rules -- and ethics? a code of conduct? don't burden us with such bizarre notions.
nancy pelosi said it of the republicans, but in truth it applies to the democrats as well:
they simply do not care if their leaders are ethical.indeed, if american politics once valued virtue, it no longer does -- in fact, no longer ever pays lip service to the notion. like pigs at the trough, all but the slops are cast aside.
