Pelosi's Most Ethical Congress Ever

I am reminded of Pinocchio as I read Ms. Speaker's statement on how she is running the most ethical and honest Congress in history. Three observations; 1) She is delusional with her view of her stewardship, 2) She is as narcissistic as her Leader in Chief, and 3) she is clueless when it comes to ethical behavior, or should I say the lack of it.

Ms. Ethics of the House, Her Speakership Pelosi has, at least for now determined she will not ask for Mr. Rangel's resignation from the chairmanship of the House Ways and Means Committee (of course this is to give time to find a way to plausibly do nothing).

The Democratic power base will take whatever action it can to protect one of their own. Pelosi is merely using delay and stalling tactics in hopes this will either blow over, or they can find a way to justify his lack of ethical behavior or else assign responsibility to someone other than "good ole Charlie."

Frankly the whole thing stinks and so once again the lack of credibility is obvious, at least to this individual anyway. Before going further, and in fairness, the other side of the politically corrupt aisle is not much better.

What any ethical leader would do given the admonishment of  Rangel by the Ethics Committee is to immediately and unequivocally ask for his immediate resignation of his chairmanship.  And if not given, fire him.

And the President ought to be sending a clear and strong message to Speaker, and all in Congress that clear unethical behavior is not to be tolerated.

My guess at this point? This will be just another charade in the never ending spiral of our leaders into the character abyss.

  1. to paraphrase a Clinton lawyer, Nancy must not believe that his behavior was severe enough to warrant his stepping down. :)

    we have to also recognize that Charlie is a very powerful man in Washington possibly even more powerful than Nancy is. and she knows that she will need his support on any legislation.

    or we can say that this is another case where the end justifying the means.
