Sour Grapes
Of course we're Fair and Balanced!


You don't need a weatherman...

Today's Philadelphia Inquirer has an editorial titled "Bush and the New Congress An ill wind is blowing." I could hardly be in more wholehearted agreement:

Republicans in the U.S. House are congratulating themselves this week for reversing one hypocritical power play. But as Washington gets down to business again, GOP leaders still show every intention of abusing their expanded power and burying the art of compromise.

Republican lawmakers did come to their senses in undoing the rule change that would have allowed House Majority Leader Tom DeLay (R., Texas) to keep his post if he were indicted in a fund-raising probe in Texas....

But rescinding that ill-advised rule change doesn't alter the fact that the House GOP still has relaxed ethics standards in the new Congress....

This flexing of partisan muscle in the House still pales next to the raw display of power that President Bush and Senate Majority Leader Bill Frist (R., Tenn.) are planning in the Senate....

Curious as to what a conservative point of view might be on these issues, I looked at what the Washington Times and Fox News had to say about this matter. Granted, these are two news stories while the Inquirer piece is an editorial. Still, I was interested that I didn't see anything in either story that seemed to blunt the Inquirer editorial.
