At long last there is an issue that is important enough to make the two parties in Congress come together in a spirit of bipartisan resolve. In an amazing display of cooperation when the stakes are high, lawmakers on both sides of the aisle have united to deal with the most critical issue of our time: to ensure that the elite corruption club to which they belong is able to retains its privileges; and remains above the law.

Doesn't it make you just weep with admiration for the spirit of patriotism they exhibit in these difficult times?

UPDATE: Dafydd at Big Lizards has the following to say:
I think it was Paul Mirengoff over on Power Line who wondered how long it would be before the blatant bribery case against Rep. William Jefferson (D-LA), was sent to the back of the bus while yet another accusation of George W. Bush's "unilateral approach to the use of [executive] authority" hopped into the driver's seat instead.

In other words, who cares whether Jefferson took hundreds of thousands of dollars in bribes... George Bush violated Congressional protocol. B'gad, but we must keep a sense of priorities here; what could possibly be more important to the republic than the privileges of members of Congress?

What, indeed?
