Republicans Unveil New Ethics Plan, Pt II

I've got say, this new GOP "ethics package" sounds just great. And this item is expecially interesting:
The package also includes a virtual ban on gifts.
A "virtual ban" on gifts. Excellent. Because we wouldn't want to see anything in a new "ethics" package that would indicate an actual ban on gifts, now would we? This virtual ban is likely possessed of some airy, inconsequential nature that, once the noisy, unpleasant media din passes, will allow the GOP to return to its regularly scheduled programming.

Just as a reminder,
vir·tu·al: Existing or resulting in essence or effect though not in actual fact, form, or name: the virtual extinction of the buffalo.
As we all know, with proper nuturing, the buffalo have made a remarkably healthy comeback.
