Senate to investigate Iraq weapons intel

From Yahoo/AP

And before somebody (:roll:) comes in here and decries it as a liberal witchhunt, bear in mind that the article says that it is spearheaded by Republican Senator John Warner and heartily endorsed by former Republican presidential candidate (in a fair world, he'd be president right now) Senator John McCain.

John Warner is from VA and has always been a staunch suporter of the military. I don''t know it for a fact, but it wouldn''t surprise me that he''s trying to find a method for increased spending in the intelligence/military community.

I wouldn''t take any Democrats word on this subject. Any excuse to go after a Republican adminstration and so on....

I wouldn''t take any Republican word on this subject. What with them being corporate oil whores and so on ...

I can generalize too!

Isn''t that sort of circular? I don''t trust those Democrats, because they don''t trust me. You''re going to need some tinfoil soon Yomm

e;f;b (edit;f*ck;beaten) and also, Elysiums was much funnier.

Oh right. Democrats never find fault with a Republican adminstration.

Hey, if it was the other way around it''d be stated.

I think one can generalize regarding political party marching orders. Unless the dream world you currently reside in, precludes politics as a nasty and, often times, predictable means of power whoring?

Nobody said that. I was merely pointing out that just because theyre Democrats doesn''t mean theyre wrong. Of course, I don''t know why I''m listening to you, your avatar is a pengiun, and we all know those pengiuns are liars.

There''s a careful balance to be met with generalizing expectations of what someone in a party will do or say, and closing yourself off to opposition views based on assumption.

I still try to listen to conservative ideas, comments, and political positions on the hope that they might say something I agree with, even on a subject I felt firm on before. It doesn''t happen often, but it _does_ happen.

Great. But you''re not an elected offical marching to the tune of beating down the opposition to gain power for your own party.

I think some of you folks are a little to itchy on the triger everytime I say something.

I was just pointing out that this was politics as usual. Doesn''t matter the subject matter or how right/wrong the adminstration is ( or whatever side the adminstration is on) you''re going to have the other side circle the swim hole, looking for blood.

And Pyro, I take it you''ve never read the comic strip ''Bloom County'' before. Other then a pay web site, or the books, its going to be hard to find, but I recomend you try. Never bust on Opus!

Maybe I''m being trigger happy, but this:

pushed my buttons in a pretty obvious way. On the plus side, I now have more faith in your ability to fill in for Ulairi in his absences!

Never bust on Opus!

Now, this, I can get on board with.

Actually I have, but I couldn''t remember what that thing was, so I said pengiun. Is he a platypus?

Ahhh, a question for the ages. If you ever find out, let me know.

All I remember of Opus is he and his friends checking their packages in a rather famous panel from days long gone.
