Stuffed full of fresh faces and stale ideas, Congress returned last week to the scene of its crimes. Even before the th incarnation of that venerable body set about doing the people's and the lobbyists' business not necessarily in order of importance , the air above Capitol Hill grew chokingly thick with platitudes and bombast.

The acrid atmosphere not only affected our beloved solons—the new speaker of the House of Representatives, John Boehner known affectionately as the Grim Weeper , had to whip out his hankie to fend off the noxious fumes—but apparently caused thousands of blackbirds as far away as Arkansas to fall lifeless from the skies.

Boehner retained sufficient composure to begin his chamber's reading aloud of the Constitution. In truth, the House chose to recite a redacted version of that historic document to recite, eliminating certain passages—like the reference to a slave being three-fifths of a person—in the interest of political correctness.

It struck us as kind of like eliminating the "begets" from the Old Testament. Forgive us for assuming that Republican dogma held that there could be no ad hoc changes to the Constitution except, it turns out, when expediency trumps principle. Not every representative volunteered to participate in the vocal exercise. Many of those who opted out explained that reading made their lips grow tired, which is, as we all know, the worst thing that can happen to a politician.

The only interruption was occasioned by a woman in the gallery—incensed when the part of the Constitution stipulating that only native-born Americans were eligible to be president was read—shouted "except for Obama, except for Obama," and got the boot.

Normally, the citizenry has as much interest in the opening session of a new Congress as it does in the love life of a fruit fly. But what made this one different was that it came on the heels of the Republicans' triumph in the last election, which gained them control of the House and swelled their ranks in the Senate, producing at least a glimmer of hope for something other than the same old, same old.

It took no time at all to make even that slim glimmer a heck of a lot dimmer. Meanwhile, President Obama, with the bruises still hurtful from his "shellacking" in the vote and both eyes firmly fixed on , when his lease on the White House is up for renewal, is busily recasting his retinue, eager to spruce it up with new faces. Thus, to replace Rahm Emanuel, who had been his chief of staff but recently departed to run for mayor of Chicago, the president has picked William Daley, a new face apparently only to Mr.

The brother of Richard Daley, Chicago's current mayor, William Daley is an old political hand, no stranger to corporate boardrooms and supposedly wise in the wiles and ways of Washington. More recently, he has labored for JPMorgan Chase, where he was hired for his political savvy and connections, serving first as overseer of its Midwestern operations and then gradually expanding his executive reach.

Only an irredeemable cynic would suggest that maybe Mr.
