Get Your Priorities Straight
An investigation into the teen page sex scandal that has rocked Washington, D.C., in recent days is expected to last weeks, not months, members of the House Ethics Committee announced today. A subcommittee looking into the matter issued four dozen subpoenas today for House members and officers, according to committee chairman Rep. Doc Hastings (R-Wa.). "The American people and especially the parents of all pages are entitled to know how this was able to happen," Hastings said. He added, "We have no other higher priority."Really? You have no other higher priority? Hmm. How about our soldiers dying overseas? Our national health insurance crisis? The ongoing threats to our Homeland Security? The swell of illegal immigrants crossing our borders? Nope, I guess those take a backseat to a guy who did something that's apparently more unethical than... oh, I don't know, fighting an unjust, unprovoked war at the saking of thousands of innocent lives.
Okay, I'm done. I just needed to get that off my chest. Thanks.
