Never mind

The GOP is vowing to tackle ethics reform, among other things.

''We will take steps necessary to plug those areas where problems have erupted," said Boehner, an Ohio Republican, adding that ethics reform will be merely the first of many initiatives this spring, including a new fiscally responsible budget plan.

Translation: "We were sleazy, but we'll be good now, at least in the areas where we've been caught." Also, note the tacit admission that up until now their budget plans have not been fiscally responsible.

Why should we suddenly trust them now?

No problem. I like what you've started to do with D&C -- a few carefully chosen topics.

How's the revolution working out, BTW? ;)

Not a revolution - those make people nervous.

Just a movement - those make people intrigued.

Intrigued gets news coverage, nervous gets jail time or worse....

I'll let you know. I guess now that we have the credo, we'll have to start working on the manifesto.

Peace,

Matt
