We see it all the time in Washington: if Republicans don’t like the rules, they try to change them--like the time House Republicans changed the rules so their beloved Tom DeLay could keep his leadership post should he be indicted in Texas.

Republican lawmaker, used care saleswoman—it’s hard to trust either one, much less a person who is both.
