Bully Boy ethics "Ha-ha"

Let's all do our best Nelson "Ha-ha" as we think of Bully Boy ordering his staff into ethic's training. Isaiah's The World Today Just Nuts on this made me laugh but I had another thought:
What if they really paid attention in "ethics" training?

Would it lead to a mass exodus from the administration?

Focus on that cheery thought for the day.

Also check out the Gareth Porter article that C.I.'s been noting, "Witnesses Describe Ballot Fraud in Nineveh:"

Both U.S. military informants and testimony gathered by civil society leaders in Nineveh reported that the Kurds had spread the rumour in Nineveh province that voters who did not vote "yes" would lose their food ration cards. Many farmers and their families were said by the independent informant to have voted "yes" on the understanding that would ensure the renewal of their ration cards.
The picture of voting irregularities and fear in Nineveh sketched out in these reports from non-Sunni sources collected by the U.S. military and civil society groups support the complaints about electoral fraud by Sunni political figures. And they belie the official portrayal of the referendum as a step toward political legitimacy and democratic development.
