How short is a Republicans memory?

How do Republicans get away with their lies and hypocrisy?

Their supporters have short memories.

Never mind the states rights and limited government rhetoric that Rush and others touted all through the 90's. Never mind the "Republican Contract with America" or fiscal responsibility. I don't expect Republicans to remember that far back. But, what about just a few months ago? What about the changing of the rules on the House Ethics committee and the stacking of that committee with Tom Delay supporters? I expect them to remember their vehement denials that the committee's integrity was compromised when the rules were changes and moderate Republicans were replaced with those close to Delay.

Now the truth is coming to light:

Two Republicans won't join DeLay ethics probe

Ethics panel members gave money to aid his legal defense

"Republican members of the House ethics committee recused themselves Wednesday from any investigation of House Majority Leader Tom DeLay, saying their presence on the panel could pose a potential conflict of interest because they both contributed to DeLay's legal defense fund."

Well of course they are Republicans. They are lucky if they can remember if they wiped their butt after taking a dump. HA! :)

Now, concerning the ethics probe. A few weeks ago, I watching Meet the Press and they had two US House of Reps there, Barney Frank and Roy Blunt. Frank had been apprehened by the ethics committee, and he showed no qualms about it. Also, Rep. Frank mentioned something interesting. He said if the charges of an ethics violation are not brought up within 45 days of its finding, a case cannot be made. I think that the Republicans are stalling because of this, and when times comes around, they will be like Oh, can't have an investigation now.
