My personal musings about anything that gets on my radar screen--heavily dominated by politics.


Sometimes I Think We Just Don't Get It

So here's Tom Kean rushing to defend Jamie Gorelick's role on the 9-11 Commission:

Several of Gorelick's colleagues on the commission rushed to her defense, characterizing her as qualified and nonpartisan, and complaining privately that she was ambushed by Ashcroft.

"We don't want to get in a fight with the attorney general, and I hope he doesn't want to get in a fight with us," said commission Chairman Thomas H. Kean, the former Republican governor of New Jersey. But "people ought to stay out of our business."

I posited the idea a few nights ago that we--the Right--cannot continue to act as if the Dems will act according to the best interest of the country. So while the Left screams for Scalia to recuse himself because he happened to be on the same hunting trip as the Veep, the Right (with a few notable exceptions) bends over backwards to defend someone who is intimately involved in the minutae of an ongoing investigation.

Until we actually choose to join the battle, we deserve the results we get.
