GOP elects new leader focused on "reform"

The GOP contends that its new House Majority Leader, John Boehner, is focused on the change the Republicans promised back in the Newt Gingrich days. If the guy's planning on any reform at all, however, which I doubt, it will certainly be almost entirely superficial - this is the man who was caught passing out checks from tobacco companies on the House floor, and who is refusing to return donations from tribes received via Jack Abramoff. It's another reason that people can't trust that the Republican Party will return to its former self, or even what its former self puported to be.
