Meet the new boss, same as the old boss

The Republican Party has elected John Boehner, an Ohio Republican with ties to the Abramoff corruption scandal, to be their new House Majority Leader. Because, after all, Ohio Republicans are not known for corruption and thus electing an Ohio Republican to lead the House will present the image of the modern Republican Party that is necessary in order to eliminate the perception of a Republican culture of corruption.

Boy, I'm sure glad to hear that the Republicans in the House are so intent upon cleaning up any taint of corruption in their chambers! Makes me feel proud to be an American, yessiree, to have such honest, straightforward legislators in Washington D.C.!
