It's Just Nuts and Bolton

John Kerry acted more like a hero today than he did in two years of campaigning when he steadfastly countered Senator Richard Luger (Foreign Relations Committee Chairman) assertion that there were 10 Republicans on the committee and they all knew how they were going to vote, (and against the 8 Democrats) so delaying the Bolton vote didn't matter regardless of new information on him, so why not get down to it? And Kerry continued uninterrupted saying new information had come to light about Bolton that continued to question his integrity, that good honest government workers had come forward with this information and it deserved to be looked at, but if Luger didn't want to, if he wanted to vote blind, that was his choice. Not surprisingly, there wasn't an immediate response from the Senator. Then things started to go south when Senator Voinovich (R-Ohio) said he didn't feel comfortable voting today, and then Chafee (R-Rhode Island) and Hagel (R-Nebraska) agreed, Luger had to cut and run and save the vote. So, not surprisingly, he suddenly agreed to postpone the vote to do some serious damage control. Congratulations to Kerry, Boxer et. al. for the passion and fire we all so desperately need.

It's about time the opposition party started opposing. The Dems should throw a turd in every punchbowl they bring out.

Too bad the Dems are a few short months away from obsolescence. Read this article:
