Bush's White House: Ethics for the unethical

The Post is reporting that "President Bush has ordered White House staff to attend mandatory briefings beginning next week on ethical behavior and the handling of classified material after the indictment last week of a senior administration official in the CIA leak probe". (See also here.)

A little late, no?

(Who will be running this "ethics course"? None other than Harriet Miers -- who, despite her recent nomination debacle, looks mighty clean next to some of her colleagues in the White House. But why is it that a lawyer has been assigned to teach ethics? Is that even possible? Somewhere, Aristotle isn't impressed.)
