"Honesty is not too much to demand of men in government." -- Barry Goldwater

Xpatriated Texan has a thoughtful post about corruption in government.

I simply don't think that Congress can effectively investigate Congress. Much is made about how the Attorney General is caught in an automatic conflict-of-interest when the White House is being investigated (because he's appointed by the President), but we seem okay with the idea that a few Congresspersons who are hand-picked by the rest of Congress will do a good job of policing its members. Hogwash. It's like telling the convicts to elect a warden and then not expecting a jailbreak.

There's more good stuff there.
