Priorities, Priorities

Seems like a perfect case of wrong priorities. Shouldn't the members of the Caucus be angrier that, to the extent there's a shared group identity among its membership, that Rep. Jefferson disgraced all of them -- rather than objecting to the fact that someone's trying to hold Jefferson accountable?

Since when have Democrats wanted to hold anyone accountable?

They didn't want to hold Clinton accountable. They don't want to hold terrorists accountable.

They don't even want to hold Republicans accountable. They only want to take their majority away.

WASHINGTON Feb 8, 2006 (AP)— Indicted Rep. Tom DeLay, forced to step down as the No. 2 Republican in the House, scored a soft landing Wednesday as GOP leaders rewarded him with a coveted seat on the Appropriations Committee.

DeLay, R-Texas, also claimed a seat on the subcommittee overseeing the Justice Department, which is currently investigating an influence-peddling scandal involving disgraced lobbyist Jack Abramoff and his dealings with lawmakers. The subcommittee also has responsibility over NASA a top priority for DeLay, since the Johnson Space Center is located in his Houston-area district.
