Housekeeping, GOP Style

Well, they've doused the hallowed halls of Capitol Hill in Pine-Sol, Febreeze-d the carpeting on the floors of the House and Senate, and even wrapped those cute little pine trees over all the lighting fixtures, but they just can't seem to get the stench out of Congress.

Hmmm.... wonder why?

Maybe it's the fact that they placed Sen. Rick Santorum in a leadership position in drafting ethics reform legislation? But that seems easy enough to clean up.

Maybe it's the fact that recently elected House Majority Leader, Rep. John Boehner, isn't sleeping well at night? HatTip to Crooks and Liars.

Maybe it's the fact that one of the MAJOR sources of stench, Rep. Tom DeLay, has the GOP scratching their heads muttering to themselves, "I wish I knew how to quit you!" Not only does DeLay get an Appropriations seat, but he'll also be seated on the subcommitte overseeing the Justice Department - yes, the same Justice Department in charge of putting together the investigation against Jack Abramoff. Yes - the same Jack Abramoff whose scandal forced Tom DeLay to leave his Leadership post in the first place.

The Senate was evacuated this evening, as a sensor detected the presence of a nerve agent in the building. The Capitol police later gave the all-clear, stating that it was actually "YOU-ALL-HAVE-A-HELL-OF-A-LOT-OF-NERVE" agent found... seems nothing can be done about that, though.
