Always an easy target.

What is it that makes rational human beings lose sight of common sense when they go into politics? I know I've picked some pretty easy targets here, but two articles I read this week made me sit back and once again ponder that age old question. In the first we see Harry Reid, the minority leader of the Senate and the man behind the charge to rid Washington of the Republican Party's "culture of corruption," accepts free boxing tickets from an agency trying to win his legislative favor and he sees no ethical problem with it. Fortunately, he came around. In other news, John Kerry decides two years after his presidential campaign ends that it might be a good idea to fight back against the claims made by the Swift Boat Veterans for Truth. Good call, Senator.
