Comment of the day.

Pejman Yousefzadeh Attorney and blogger :

Nancy Pelosi promised us "the most ethical Congress in history," during the 2006 midterm elections. The reality is quite different. Every effort was made by the House Democratic leadership to save Charlie Rangel, despite the mountain of evidence showing that he violated ethical rules. The House Democrats were only willing to cut Rangel loose when he became too much of an embarrassment to them.

Ethical people usually do not have to be coerced into behaving ethically. However, in Rangel's case, no amount of coercion got him to be ethical, and it took the political equivalent of moving heaven and earth to get the House Democratic leadership to denounce Rangel's behavior. If this is the Democratic leadership's idea of good government, then I would hate to see bad government in action.
