CUT THEIR PAY AND SEND THEM HOME: GOP Congress members are objecting to the FBI raid on bribery suspect Rep. William Jefferson. I'd approve of this bipartisan spirit if it weren't just an example of the only kind of bipartisanship you can really count on from Congress -- standing shoulder to shoulder in defense of insiders' perks and against the interests of the voters.

UPDATE: Heh: "Sort of like a man who catches his cheating spouse in the act and all she can say is 'I can't believe you didn't knock!'"
