"Roving" Dems back in action

Now that those pesky little terrorist bombing diversions are over, the Democrats can get back to the important work of the country -- getting Karl Rove's head on a platter. According to Foxnews Senator John Kerry has sent a scathing letter to Senate Majority Leader Bill Frist and House Speaker Dennis Hastert expressing his concern over the leaking of CIA agent Valerie Plame's identity. Says Kerry,
"Can anyone argue with a straight face that Congress has time to look at steroid use in baseball but doesn't have the will to provide congressional oversight of the leak of a CIA agent's name?"

Senator, I can't even look at you with a straight face.

The letter was also signed by Hillary Clinton, Charles Schumer, Frank Lautenberg, Barbara Boxer, Diane Feinstein, Dick Durbin, Barack Obama, bla, bla...you get the picture.

The text reads in part:

"The United States Congress has a constitutional responsibility to provide oversight of the executive branch, whether a law has been broken or not. It is time for Congress to fulfill that constitutional responsibility in this matter by initiating a thorough investigation."

Italics are mine. Interestingly, the Dems now seem to be conceding that a law probably wasn't broken. But that doesn't matter, because Karl Rove is a rat and everyone knows that and he just HAS to be fired for something! And it just isn't fair that President Bush has consistently maintained that he would only fire a staffer if they broke the law. Dangit, if only he had set that bar just a little lower! Why can't he be more like Clinton and change his story every five minutes?

Well, now we have their official signatures on this non-issue, which is akin to signing up for a public wedgie. They are just going to embarrass themselves and further corroborate the fact that they are a party that stands for absolutely nothing.
