    Really shows you what the Republican Party is all about, eh?

    If any project was supposed to be the poster child for the neoconservatism, Iraq was it. Even in the cynical view, they wanted a stable, friendly government that would host permanent bases to control the Middle East (and replace the ones they abandoned to placate their friends the Saudis.) It would show all those weaklings how they were really right about a muscular foreign policy.

    And even so, they undermine the whole thing by shoveling tax dollars to their corrupt cronies, revealing that looting the Treasury to line the pockets of your friends is really the only core conservative principle.

    Why are the American people storming the gates and protesting this outrageous misuse of their tax dollars? Where is the outrage? And, why are the Republicans supporting what, with any other poltical party, would be a suicidal policy? And where are the Democrat’s expressions of outrage? Really, dramatic expressions of outrage?

    Gee, I wonder if they’ll be able to run out the clock, while Democrats conduct their â€oversight?â€

    Remind me to buy stock in whatever the hell Jeb’s friends do for a living.

    I suppose we aren’t likely to see Ken Starr come back to investigate this, are we. Whitewater was so much nothing compared to what this bunch of crooks has pulled off.
