Bush and Rather Squabble on the Evening News

After seven years of Reagan White House-style "ethics," we are now seeing that not only do people there attempt to blur and conceal their roles in nefarious activities, they have the audacity to become vitriolic when questioned about their actions. And instead of the governed accepting nothing less than honest answers of elected officials, we flood switchboards attacking someone who tried to break through the evasive responses in a vain attempt to get some facts. My fear is that we will continue getting the elected officials we deserve.
