As I watched some of the hearings yesterday with the attorney general, one thing became abundantly clear. The politicians in Washington could benefit from a class in "Cowboy Ethics." If societal culture is shaped by the example of the Washington elite, it is evident that we are destined to be a rude and disrespectful nation. I understand politics. I understand dramatic acting. When the two are joined together you get political theater. The hearing yesterday was not looking for answers. It was looking for sound bites to be used as campaign propaganda for the remaining three months before the election. A question offered by Pontius Pilate may have been relevant again yesterday, "What is truth?"
If you were teaching a young child about good manners, what lessons would he/she have learned yesterday from some of our top congressional leaders?
