Power Corrupts...

Absolute power corrupts absolutely.

When it's a Democrat in trouble, then he'd better step down. When it's a Republican in trouble, well, by all means - keep on the job! Ethics, schmethics!

While we're on the Times Op-Ed page, Bob Herbert has another good one:

Competence has never been highly regarded by the fantasists of the George W. Bush administration. In the Bush circle, no less than in your average youth gang, loyalty is everything. The big difference, of course, is that the administration is far more dangerous than any gang. History will show that the Bush crowd of incompetents brought tremendous amounts of suffering to enormous numbers of people. The amount of blood being shed is sickening, and there is no end to the grief in sight.
