Pelosi calls GOP sham, 'a sham'
If you're feeling defeated by the Democrats' often flaccid responses to rampant Republican misdeeds, take heart in Nancy Pelosi's response to the GOP's proposal to investigate Tom DeLay itself: "Let me be very clear: What Mr. Hastings was presenting was a sham... [The Republicans] are destroying the ethics process. It is outrageous. And the fact is, is that whatever Mr. DeLay's problems are, they're almost minor compared to the abuse of power of the Republicans in terms of the ethics process, which is a bigger issue than Mr. DeLay. It's about the integrity of the House and upholding a high ethical standard." (The Stakeholder)
