The Parable of Pharisee Harry And The Republicans
From AP comes word that Harry Reid is, gasp, reversing himself and acknowledging he misstated the ethics rules about his accepting gratuities (that's misstated, as in not telling the truth better known as LYING). He has decided to avoid such gifts in the future. Still, he says it was "entirely permissible" for him to accept the free ringside boxing tickets from the Nevada Athletic Commission while that state agency was trying to influence him on federal regulation of boxing. The man has no shame.
Yes, the picture is Harry, back in January, clutching his black heart and calling for lawmakers, especially Republicans to clean up their act with lobbyists. He should be praying not to be struck dead for his hypocrisy.
