Shame, Thy Name is The Swimmer

Andrew McCartney over at The Corner has this little gem: "At the Gonzales hearing this morning: On ’water-boarding,’ Senator Kennedy, I kid you not, actually said that ’as a human being,’ he would have been ’offended’ by something that could have caused ’drowning.’" Me thinks the Senator doth protest too much.

I thought the blue staters were the sophisticated ironists. How could their prince make a statement that funny, and not catch it?
You know how airlines have frequent flyer points...so many and you get a free pass? Well, Washington, or at least Mass. must have a frequent drunk program. So many days hammered and you get the pass. I think weve just entered Bizzaro-DC. Being a letcherous pompous elitist booze locust gives you the rightousness to judge others. Jeez.
I HEREBY DECLARE JANUARY 6TH, 2005, NATIONAL DEMOCRACTIC FOOLS DAY. WHAT A DISGRACE, THE TORTURE OF GONZALES, AND THE BOXER REBELLION. I CAN NOT IMAGE ANY ONE, WANTING TO BE PART OF A POLITICAL PARTY THAT CONTINUES TO STOOP LOWER AND LOWER. All at our expense!!
Barbara Boxer should thank her lucky stars that she lives in California. She could not get elected in any other state. And Stephanie Tubbs Jones had better be thankful that her district is so gerrymandered. If she ever tried to move somewhere less than 80% Democratic, she would take an electoral beating of monumental proportions.
Its time for the fringe to grow up and accept that (1) your man, John Kerry, lost, both in Ohio and nationwide, by safe margins; (2) you lost seats in both houses of Congress; and (3) you control a fraction of governships, and cannot even win those seats in NY, CA, and MA, the three most liberal states in the Union. We don’t need conspiracy theories to figure this out. Your ideas are bad and unpopular, your candidates are weak, and your demagoguery no longer works.
It’s really just that simple. Deal with it.
