Then there are stories that suggest Pelosi will pass over the competent Rep. Jane Harman, D-Calif., to head the House Intelligence Committee in favor of Rep. Alcee Hastings of Florida -- whom the House stripped of his position as a judge and impeached in 1988 for his role in a bribery scandal. This is draining the swamp?

Pelosi is acting as if she wants a short honeymoon. After this week, this much seems clear. When Pelosi railed about the GOP "culture of corruption," it was just a sound bite.
