Another Trick (Surprised?)

-- by Dave Johnson

The headline says G.O.P. Will Relent on Ethics Rules, House Speaker Says and the story says,

Saying that an ethics impasse needed to be resolved to provide a chance for Representative Tom DeLay to clear his name, Speaker J. Dennis Hastert said this morning that Republicans were ready to relent on rules changes that have left the ethics committee unable to do any work.
But gosh darn it, it's just another trick. You see, what isn't changing is that the Republicans pick the Ethics Comittee staff now, and it is the staff that conducts the actual investigation. So of course the investigations will clear Republicans while condemning Democrats. Doh!

Thanks, Dave. Somehow the media is not pointing this out.
