Hey Hey Bob Ney, How Much Does Jack Pay to Play?

Via Political Wire, Representative Bob Ney is resigning his position as the chairman of the House Administration Committee, in light of the recent accusations about his connections to indicted lobbyist Jack Abramoff.

It's all up to the media now. It seems that, like most everything else, if the media wants to make two resignations within the GOP leadership sound big, it can. Take the primaries, for instance. While major news outlets often exaggerate the performance of the first place candidates in Iowa and New Hampshire, they also make a big deal out of candidates finishing in "strong seconds" and "unexpected thirds", in hopes to keep the viewers interested in a race that may or may not be close at all.
