Republicans Reverse Rule Change


Republican leadership in the House of Representatives vote to return to a decade old ethics rule. Specifically, if you can believe it, it was Tom DeLay who requested the reversal.

Republicans applauded behind closed doors as they approved on a voice vote DeLay's motion to revert to their decade-old rule that requires a leader indicted of a felony to step aside, said spokesman Jonathan Grella.

According to Grella,

"Tom spoke from the heart. He said he wanted to put the focus on the Republican agenda (and such matters as education and health care) -- not him."

Excuse me, but I think I just threw up in my mouth.

Oh, yeah and the Republicans also made it harder for the House ethics committee to investigate a complaint against a House member. But who really cares, right? I mean after all "Tom spoke from the heart".
