Senator Useless Strikes Again

Senator Diane Feinstein, one of the greatest wastes of space and oxygen the Democratic party has ever produced, supports the nomination of Condoleezza Rice for Secretary of State, saying, "Dr. Rice has the skill, judgement, and poise to lead in these difficult times."

Skill, Judgement, and poise, eh? The woman who was afraid to go before the 9/11 commission, then lied when she got there? The woman who claimed that nobody could imagine that terrorists would fly planes into buildings? The woman who was scheduled on 9/11 to give a National Security briefing that the greatest threat to this country was ICBMs? The woman who felt the infamous August daily briefing outlining the threat from Al-Qaeda was only of historical interest? The one who couldn't be bothered to read the October 2002 White Paper describing the Iraqi threat in less than absolute terms? Where has this needed skill and judgement been demonstrated?

I guess Feinstein's approval of Rice explains the response I got from the good Senator's office when I emailed her my thoughts on Rice's nomination:

Dear Mr. Gumby:

Letter begins here.

Sincerely yours,

Dianne Feinstein
United States Senator

Yeah, that was the entire response. I would've been ashamed of my position, too, if I were Feinstein.
