Ethics Not Completely Dead in the G.O.P.

Republican lawmakers — House members, no less — demonstrated that, unlike their appointed leadership, they are not completely devoid of ethics. The party may have been handed over to the likes of Dennis Hastert and Tom DeLay, to whom the very concept of ethics is totally alien, but at least some of those in the party still have some shred of human decency left.

Now all we can do is wait for that indictment to come down...

I’m off to San Diego for another video shoot this afternoon, but I thought I’d pass along a couple of interesting reading items.

First, Michael Kinsley’s got an intriguing commentary on the future of voting in America, and a rethinking of the tradeoff between privacy and convenience. (Along the same futurist lines, I’d also recommend his column of last month on the blogosphere phenomenon.)

And second, Richard Cohen points out how the Bush administration isn’t just Orwellian, but really combines Orwellian and Kafkaesque. Particularly apt given the recent Bush/Orwell discussion.

Read, comment, and I’ll see you when I get back.

Wait. The HOUSE is behaving like people with ethics and opposable thumbs? Hell is freezing over.

Re: "Read, comment, and I'll get back to you:" I'm tempted to repeat in Mike Myers' Coffee Talk persona:

"Topic: Good Charlotte is neither Charlotte nor good. Discuss."
