Kerry & Boxer, WHAT A JOKE!

Could you imagine, regardless of the Iraq war, if a senator from Mass and Cal had been the only NO votes on the Senate Foreign Relations Committee to endorse a black women DEMOCRAT for Sec State? It would be the biggest race scandal in decades! You really must read the transcripts of the exchanges between these two and Condi Rice. It was just old partisan foley, a retread of the same old anti-Bush mantra...they only took this stance with Rice and voted NO in order to show their base that they oppose everything Bush! Their exchanges looked childish and bitter to me and would to anybody being honest about it. Boxer in particular was also prone to falsehoods that James Taranto of the WSJ weblog points out in his piece today. During one exchange where Boxer just has to say one more time that Bush lied about WMD's in order to use force in Iraq, Rice very calmly explains to the senator that it wasn't just WMD's providing some detail. To which Boxer replies:

Well, you should read what we voted on when we voted to support the war, which I did not, but most of my colleagues did. It was WMD, period. That was the reason and the causation for that, you know, particular vote.

Well, Boxer is either stupid, or didn't read the authorization to use force in Iraq, or didn't understand it, or is just ignoring the facts to support her weak position...or all the above. Directly from the authorization to use force (which by the way is about 3 pages max):

Whereas Iraq persists in violating resolution of the United Nations Security Council by continuing to engage in brutal repression of its civilian population thereby threatening international peace and security in the region, by refusing to release, repatriate, or account for non-Iraqi citizens wrongfully detained by Iraq, including an American serviceman, and by failing to return property wrongfully seized by Iraq from Kuwait; . . .

The President is authorized to use the Armed Forces of the United States as he determines to be necessary and appropriate in order to--
(1) defend the national security of the United States against the continuing threat posed by Iraq; and
(2) enforce all relevant United Nations Security Council resolutions regarding Iraq.

Actual reality and facts don't matter to Boxer....she just wants to be on record, and in the media, as opposing anything Bush to make her base (primarily leftist wackos and gays) happy. Of course her base will laud her for it as they are blind to the childish and bitter display the actual video of the exchanges between Boxer and Rice show. Boxer is at best unknowing or ignorant, at worst a liar with none of a virtue that Rice has in spades....integrity.

And apparently more comi a-hole wacko Dems want to get their mug and vile words out to the media so that their anti-american a-hole constituents see them combating everything Bush!

CONFIRMATION...Boxer is an illiterate bee-atch!
A friend informed me of a petition Boxer has on her website about the Rice hearings.....still asking the old, dead, conspiracy theory questions. I can only conclude Boxer can't actually read since the 911 commission report along with plenty of other senate and non-White House produced material on Iraq, the intelligence leading up to the war and everything that has gone on answer these questions fully! Oh, and look how many "Americans" have signed her petition, just over 60k...that's about the number of gay couples in SF who applied for marriage licenses (I made that last part up!).
