Congressional "Ethics" Bill--More of the Same

The Congressional Ethics bill is a load of crappity-crap-crap (borrowing a phrase from BlogFather.) From Captain's Quarters, here quoting Bob Novak:

Until now, one or two senators could block provisions not passed by the Senate or House from being inserted, usually at the end of a session, into the final version of a bill. Under the new rule, it will take 40 senators to block any such provisions that are protected by the majority or even the bipartisan leadership. That will make it much easier to enact any number of special-interest measures, the goal of all too many members of Congress.

While Bush is likely to sign it, don't listen to the BS Congress is spewing about "reform."

It's more of the same (MS.) Next it'll be Piled Higher and Deeper...

Sidenote, not pertintent to the main point of your post: The phrase Crappity-crap-crap came from the Simpsons, namely Bart, not Chuckles. Though the similarity is amazing at times.:)

Regrets I've never watched the Simpsons show.

They didn't play on WFMR.
