Ethics? None.

This is just too ironic:

Republican Sen. Ted Stevens, whose home back in Alaska was raided by federal investigators Monday in a wide-ranging corruption investigation, has threatened to place a hold on the Democratic-drafted ethics legislation just passed by the House and expected on the Senate floor by week’s end.

The senator told a closed session of fellow Republicans today, including Vice President Dick Cheney, that he was upset that the measure would interfere with his travel to and from Alaska — and vowed to block it.

The rethug's obstructionism is obvious, but to have a senator who's under investigation by the FBI and the IRS for corruption blocking an ethics bill is beyond the pale.

Come on Py, this is some funny shit.

It's Absurdism at its very finest.

Soon Bush will begin teaching English to children, Cheney will teach charm school, Karl Rove and Alberto Gonzales will hold seminars on "Honesty."

You have to laugh Py. At this point we don't seem to have any other choice.
