Nancy Pelosi's Hypocrisy

What do Tom DeLay and Charlie Rangel have in common? Nothing if you ask Nancy Pelosi. When then Majority Leader Tom DeLay was facing ethics charges, Nancy Pelosi had this to say:

The burden falls upon his fellow House Republicans. Republicans must answer: Do they want an ethically unfit person to be their majority leader or do they want to remove the ethical cloud that hangs over the Capitol?
Now that Charlie Rangel, the chairman of the powerful House Ways and Means Committee, has some serious ethics charges against him, what does Nancy Pelosi have to say?
But the fact is, is that what Mr. Rangel has been admonished for is not good. It was a violation of the rules of the House. It was not a–something that jeopardized our country in any way.
So that is the new standard for ethics violations? It's only bad if the country is put in jeopardy?

I have news for you. The fact that these morons are in charge is putting the country in jeopardy.
