VOA’s Oxymoron

The Humorous Title of the Day Award goes to Voice of America for this entry: New Debate Underway on Ethics in US Congress. How can there possibly be a debate about something absent in the aforementioned body? The article begins this way:

The resignation of a Republican lawmaker who admitted to charges of bribery, tax evasion and other charges has again focused attention on the subject of ethics in U.S. Congress. Over the years, scandals have been a problem for both major political parties in the United States. However, recent developments are prompting new calls for an ethics house-cleaning in Congress

If there is to be a true house cleaning, I’d only expect to see one man standing at the end of the day: Congressman Ron Paul of Texas.
