Draining the Ethics
January 3, 2017
As day fifty-six Trumpets dark like a Russian novel, we find our boys in congress working hard, secretly meeting deep into the night, gutting the Office of Congressional Ethics.
Those silly scamps!
Haven’t they learned anything from the Donald? There’s no need to act surreptitiously. Want to kill off some pesky politically-correct silly department like Ethics? Just do it, call it something boring like cutting red tape – then send out a self-congratulatory tweet and move on with your lives.
Let’s face it, that whole hiding shitty behavior thing is so last year. Plus, congress has always been pretty bad at concealing stuff. Hell, everyone knew about their “secret” late night meeting first thing this morning. They should leave the covert activities to their Russian friends – you know, let the professionals handle the complicated stuff.
The republic stands with no need for an Office of Congressional Ethics, since there are no longer any congressional ethics to officiate.
In peace with justice,
