The Sounds of Silence From Pelosi

Captain's Quarters points out today the abject hypocrisy of Nancy Pelosi's pursuit of majority leader Tom Delay for alleged ethics violations and current silence on the issue of Democratic congresscritters who seem to have done exactly the same things for which Delay is being raked over the coals. Captain Ed expects the whole ethics controversy to quietly go away now that Democrats are exposed, and he's probably right.

Pelosi may not be the brightest intellectual star in the Democratic firmament. On Sunday, when pressed by George Stephanopolous to explain why Americans should trust her party to fix Social Security when the Dems have offered no proposals, Pelosi replied, "Americans should trust Democrats because we created Social Security."

I see. Does that mean we should trust the Democrats on voter fraud?
