Chastened Republicans get ethical.

Bwahahaha! I can't be-lieve you keep falling for that one! Quit being a sucker-- that's the job of the "liberal media." The New York Times and Washington Post both reported that Republicans bowed to public pressure and decided not to go through with the DeLay rule, that would allow an indicted committee head, speaker, etc. to keep his or her post. The GOP enacted this in the mid-90s to sock it to a Democrat. What they didn't really get around to telling you is that the Republicans have simply decided to adopt the same tactic with a lower profile. I've written enough letters for one night. I'll leave these for tomorrow.
