"The Night of the Long Gavels"
Can't take credit for the title. I stole it from this article at Talking Points Memo about how the Republicans have purged three of their own from the House Ethics Committee for being too... well... ethical.
I wrote a big long post about it yesterday but the internet ate it. I don't feel like writing it all over again, so just go read the article yourselves. If you're under the misapprehension that the Republican leadership isn't a bunch of unethical scoundrels, this is the article for you.
