Ethics Committee Honors Al Gore

WASHINGTON, D.C. -- On the House Ethics Committee today, two Repubicans recused themselves in the Tom DeLay matter, in an effort to avoid the appearance of a conflict of interest. Although they initially said that their monetary contributions to Tom DeLay's defense funds would in no way affect their ability to be impartial, they decided it would be better to avoid controversy. "We know that the Liberal Media is not biased in any way", said an unnamed Republican insider, "but there's no sense in handing those mudslingers any ammunition."

On a more cheerful note, the Ethics Committee, which prides itself on being... ethical ('duh), today announced that it would honor Al Gore with an
award for inventing the Internet in such an ethical manner.

The Ethics Committee should resolve these issues without DeLay!

I invented the Ethics Committee too. I'll get an award for that next year sometime.

Oh my goodness, he REALLY is getting an award. They also credit him with popularizing the term 'information superhighway.'

When's the last time you actually heard that term?

Good one Hawkeye.
