This is the kind of stuff that got the Dems kicked out of power in the House in 94. "Politically motivated" or not, this is a very stupid move on the GOP's part.

Couldn't agree more. Rescinding their own rule so it suits them is the height of hypocrisy... and probably the first time since they arrested Tommy Chong I've had inner rumblings about whether I'm supporting the right side here.

The rule change makes sense. Any overzealous, partisan prosecutor can try to indict somebody of the other party for some ridiculous charge.

But....

The timing on this is absolutely ridiculous.

Errr... the way the story was being reported this morning made it sound like a House rule rather than a party rule. My outrage has subsided, but as was just stated the timing does nothing to help their public image.

That is why if you are going to do it, you do it now, right after an election, rather than in August of '06, when it will become the focal point of any Congressional race where a challenger has more than a pulse. The memory of the electorate is very short term.
