... watching Secretary of State Clinton's testimony to the Senate Foreign Relations Committee, which, ever since the suffocating ascendancy of Republican opportunism, is better known as the Senate Domestic Politics Committee.
What insufferable conceit from the committee's "conservative" side. In every such demagogic instance we are reminded that had 9/11 occurred under the reign of President Gore, impeachment would have almost certainly ensued; conviction, too, quite probably--and doubtless all Democrats, forevermore, would have been draped and drenched in yet another of the GOP's bloody shirts.
So much for the Senate's routine farce. Next up, this afternoon, is the extraordinary farce of the House.
I just started to remark that any Republican pol with any genetic pull toward human decency would quit this contemptibility of a party. But that's preposterous. For "any Republican pol with any genetic pull toward human decency" is a self-negating phrase, since any such he or she would have quit the GOP years ago, hence there would be no humanly decent Republican left to quit.
