Weird GOP French Bashing

Jim Talent said about his democratic opponent, former prosecutor Claire McCaskill, on Meet the Press today this:

She said to a group of her supporters in Paris. . .

I don’t know what this means but when asked directly whether if he had been told ahead of time that there were no weapons of mass destruction in Iraq would he have voted to invade: he actually said yes.  Yes! “Well, he wanted them [WMDs], Tim.”  What a riot.

McCaskill I thought performed very well, as far as being a terrorist-sympathizing cut-and-runner goes.



Pat Buchanan is a Dick

Although I hardly thought it possible, the esteemed Pat Buchanan, failed presidential candidate, veritable hate-spewing commentator and national clown, has sunk to new lows in bigoted idiocy.

Not only is Mark Foley a “flamer,” according to Buchanan, but Nancy Pelosi “has been marching with pedophiles” and consequently has no “credibility” on denouncing Foley’s sexual deviancy and the House Republican leadership’s knowing and willful lack of response to it.  Also, Hastert didn’t know Foley well, despite the fact that Foley was a fairly influential, gregarious House Republican who’d been around for over a decade. Also, the Republican caucus had no idea that Foley was “this flamer”, as if his being gay is relevant.  And by the way, everyone on the the Hill and off the Hill knew that Foley was gay (not that there’s anything wrong with that). Also, the media doesn’t care about kids because they sat on the story.  What cracked-out planet does Buchanan live on, and why is he allowed on television?
