I can’t believe Steve Scalise, a bright congressman, would be so naive as to believe his speech to the ex-Duke supremacist group would stay buried.

Unless, at the time, he had no national ambitions.

More disturbing is House Speaker John Boehner standing with his House majority whip.

I wonder if Boehner would equally excuse Nancy Pelosi if she had given a speech to the same group.
