Ethics Truce Gone

Good riddance. The "ethics truce," where neither House Democrats nor Republicans would accuse the others of violating ethics regulations, is:

  • Bad Policy. Ethics charges need to be aired;
  • Bad for Democrats. Republicans are more corrupt than Democrats, and the corruption is more integral to their normal course of operation;
  • Bad for the Country. The more tangled the House is in bitter recrimination, the less evil shit the Republican leadership can force through.
Tom Delay, the target of the first post-truce complaint, is a worthy target, but something needs to be done about the Nick Smith/Medicare scandal.
