So, today Nancy Pelosi was sworn in as Speaker of the House. I watched it on tv, and I must say I am cautiously optimistic. She spoke of the usual crap about bipartisanship, but the most impressive thing I heard was that within the next 100 hours, they are planning to enact a new set of rules for lobbying that will dramatically restrict gifts, trips, cash donations and all manner of bribes. They are also planning to enforce a longer work week, since they rarely put in 40 hours. She has been quoted saying she wanted to eliminate the "culture of corruption", and I know there are a few good people in Washington left who feel just as sullied by the current set of criminals we've been forced to tolerate.
