Murtha's on the hot seat, Pelosi is setting her hair on fire showing she is either an idiot or just incompetent, Rangle's supposed to be up before Senate Ethics Committee and the list of issues within the dems keeps on growing.

Makes you wonder, when will they start to look at how rotten some of these people are and take action to clean their own house.

It seems to be the side effect to being in power.

Republicans will continue to be in a losing freefall if they can't divorce themselves from extremists. The chairman of your party stepandfetchit Steele backed down to Limbaugh like a little bitch.

Those people were pretty s****y before Obama was in office. I didn't expect them to change, and it's why I've advocated a leadership change since the start.

Depends on the extremists. Some of them are saner and wiser than the mainstreamers.

The Obama Administration, obviously.

Though my request for different Congressional leadership probably dates back to Pelosi taking power.

1972 Roe vs. Wade.... ethics and morals went out the door.

Doesn't matter. The idiots in their gerry mandered districts that keep voting for them will continue to keep voting for them.

Then we have the extremists who wear tin foil hats and shout, "Beam me up!" into soup strainers...like Ron Paul.

Maybe all of the crazy people are really not crazy, and maybe all of the normal people are crazy.

It is not possible for politicians to suffer from an ethical "freefall". Politicians do not have any ethics to begin with.

That's not accurate. And the percentage hasn't changed much since the founding.

98% of politicians are not Chiefs fans either. Does that mean politicians are not ethical because they are not Cheifs fans?

Nope. There are lawyers. There are Chiefs fans. There are lawyers who are Chiefs fans. But all Chiefs fans are not unethical.

Any black man who calls himself a Republican can't be a real black man, right?

Uhh no. As batshit crazy as Alan Keyes is, I've never seen him back down off of anything he's ever said. Steele is the product of obvious tokenism and quickly backed down after offending his housemaster.
