I came across a good editorial today that ran in the Philadelphia Inquirer.  It discusses the Democrat's increasing unwillingness to live up to their campaign promises to clean up earmark and ethics rules. Check it out here.
The House Democrats have short memories. Exit polls showed that a key factor that thrust them into power last November was the public's anger at the GOP majority's failure to police itself, as in the page scandal involving former Rep. Mark Foley of Florida.

If disgusted voters conclude that the new boss on Capitol Hill is the same as the old boss, it won't go well for Democrats next time at the polls.

Speaker Nancy Pelosi should spend less time jetting to Syria and more doing what voters put her in her position to do: Clean up Capitol Hill.
