Self Destructing Republicans

I love the sight of Republicans self destructing.

Secretary of State Condoleeza Rice (I am looking for a good recipe for Condoleeza Rice) accused Watergate journalist Bob Woodward Monday of inventing a terror warning she got just before 9-11 but the State Department appeared to contradict her.

Senate Majority leader Frist said he learned from briefings that Taliban fighters were too numerous and had too much popular support to be defeated on the battlefield. Huh??? Aren't they the enemy, are we conceding defeat? Talk about "Cut and Run".

The reality of Mark Foley scandal is that it is clear now that every issue in the Bush administration is partisan politics - even the safety of children. Bush loyalists worked to protect Republicans and make Democrats look bad. Sadly no one who had the opportunity and access to evidence ever acted upon it and risk the upcoming elections. To protect Congressional pages from the inappropriate advances of former Rep. Mark Foley was not important.

By the way, it is reported that former Congressman Mark Foley's campaign committee, Friends of Mark Foley, contributed $1,000 to Boy Gov Blunt's campaign in 2004. Blunt was quick to "donate the money to charity".

Keep on self destructing....
