  • The Wonkette's take on Condi Rice testimony

    The Wonkette is a former writer for some political rag that now has her own blog. There's some funny stuff on there sometimes, like this piece.

    Condi to Testify
    The Bush administration: Strong on national defense, fucking pussies when it comes to Senate hearings. Now they tell us Condi will testify under oath to the 9/11 commission. Well, that was easy. Here I was thinking we were dealing with an administration that really believed in the Constitution! Indeed, "White House has maintained that a member of the president's staff can't appear before a congressionally chartered commission without violating the Constitution's separation of powers." And Scott McClellan has been steadfast in his conviction that, well, it's the principle of the thing:

    March 9: "Again, this is not her personal preference; this goes back to a matter of principle. There is a separation of powers issue involved here. Historically, White House staffers do not testify before legislative bodies. So it's a matter of principle, not a matter of preference." [WhiteHouse.gov]

    March 17: "I think this has been previously addressed. It's not a matter of personal preference. You have to look at it as a matter of principle and a separation of powers issue." [WhiteHouse.gov]

    March 22: "Again, it's not something that's a matter of personal preference. It's a matter of separation of powers. It's a matter of principle." [WhiteHouse.gov]

    March 23: "There's a principle involved here regarding separation of powers. And I think we previously addressed that, and we've addressed that from the get-go when it comes to this issue. It's not a matter of Dr. Rice's personal preference. It's a matter of principle." [WhiteHouse.gov]


    And you know why they didn't want to fuck with the Constitution, right? Well, they were saving it for marriage.

      Never underestimate the abilities of a Republican apologist to overlook a very funny joke in order to get in a meaningless attack on Democrats.

              I'll try to overcome lazy's attempt at thread killing by re-posting the joke, with the difficult parts removed, but I'm afraid it's too late.
