Today's swamp news

So much for learning a lesson from the last election. Republicans have gutted the independent ethics commission, moving all ethics charges to the politician controlled Ethics Committee. This is the fox guarding the hen house. No wonder Congress' approval rating is equal to those in favor of Limburger cheese flavored ice cream. I am pretty sure this is exactly the opposite of what voters had in mind when they elected Trump to drain the swamp.

In pot/kettle irony, Dan Rather criticized the WSJ for not calling out Trump. Rather said it is a journalist's job to always tell the truth. I suppose as long as it is "fake but accurate" the reporting can meet that high standard.

The Who had it right. Meet the new boss, same as the old boss.

We had weird weather yesterday. It was warm for January. In fact, we had thunder and lightning last night. It is supposed to turn cold overnight and snow by Thursday. Mother Nature is messing with us.

Have a good Monday Tuesday.

They dropped this like a hit rock after Trump chided them in a tweet.
