another easy one

Senator Barbara Boxer is one of the last bastions of actual liberal politics in the Democrat Party, and tomorrow she plans to ask Condoleezza Rice some hard questions during the latter’s confirmation hearing. This is what our representatives should be doing, and it’s important to support them when they do it.
Please consider signing the petition to lend your voice to Senator Boxer’s.
Update 050127: Rice was confirmed anyway. Just to have somewhere to refer back to, here’s a list of what T aptly describes as the few remaining Dems who can still look in a mirror without flinching:

Barbara Boxer, D-Calif.
Robert Byrd, D-W.Va.
Edward Kennedy, D-Mass.
John Kerry, D-Mass.
Carl Levin, D-Mich.
Jack Reed, D-R.I
Mark Dayton, D-Minn.
Daniel Akaka, D-Hawaii
Evan Bayh, D-Ind.
Frank Lautenberg, D-N.J.
Tom Harkin, D-Iowa
Richard Durbin, D-Ill.

Note to Democratic senators not on that list: forget about running for president. Ever. You’ll be lucky to get support for re-election in 2006; I for one will oppose you vehemently if there’s an independent or untainted Dem alternative. You maggots.

  1. Honestly, I think a lot of them not on that list will get re-elected. People really just don’t appear to be paying that much attention.

  2. You’re probably right, T, but what can we do? In any case, many of those not on the list will probably be preferable, this spineless vote notwithstanding, to their 2006 opposition. I guess it’s up to people who want the system to change to roll up our sleeves and blog and go to meetings and vote and donate and write letters and change it ourselves.
    It’s just that sometimes, it seems such a huge task.
