Those damned obstructionists

By Heraclitus

The Liberal Avenger has a good account of an exchange on the Senate floor between Bill Frist, who fulminated against the Democrats for letting politics get in the way of the Senate's important business, and Sen. Harry Reid from Nevada. The pith of Reid's response:

“This Republican Congress has wasted 20 months on horse slaughtering; the Schiavo case, dealing with someone’s personal relationship, which should not even have been before this body; gay marriage; the nuclear option; flag burning; repealing the estate tax,” said Reid. “But they could not find a day for some time to look at the President’s mistakes, missteps, and misconduct, which have hurt American security and plunged Iraq into a civil war — not a day.”

  • Pithy indeed, but at least the Republicans are consistent. It was Bush's administration that couldn't find one day to have a meeting or a briefing on the terrorist threat and Osama until Osama attacked us. Not one day.

    Perhaps these aren't mistakes. Perhaps the bungling needs to be kept up so that the war can go on so that they can stay in control so that the economy can be diverted to making them rich and powerful so that they can stay in control - on and on like a great worm eating its tail.
