ABSTRACT
The article presents information on developments related to the U.S. politics. The pattern is one seen repeated again and again. It is called hubris. Inebriated by power, flying higher and higher, an exhilarating sense of power untethered by such old fashioned nuisances as being answerable to the laws the common folk must obey, the gravity of ethics reasserted its rightful power. The ethically challenged mighty are falling. It seems to be a lesson which needs to be learned again and again. The congressmen knew they would be next to fall if they too failed to pay attention to the social compact that is the foundation of our republican form of government. The post-election pundits were right: values do matter.
