The saga continues
Captain Ed, responding to his commenters, clarifies his position on Rumsfeld. However, I disagree wholeheartedly with one of his statements.
* If that is to happen, then the White House needs to address the concerns of those GOP senators that appear to have issues with Rumsfeld, especially Lott and Coleman. I agree with y'all that Hagel, McCain, and Collins can be ignored, although not forever for McCain. The White House needs to insist on some party discipline from Frist and McConnell. We started seeing it yesterday -- finally. Doesn't anyone find it odd that the White House let Rummy twist in the wind as long as he did? I sure do.Personally, I think Bush should take Lott, McCain and Hagel out behind the woodshed and give all three of them a good spanking. They're an embarassment to the Republican party. Collins is waste of time, and I'm not sure how Coleman factors in to this.)
I'm thinking seriously about doing a lengthy post on McCain, who I think is a self-aggrandizing egoist (which is why he gets along so well with John Kerry - birds of a feather....) who will take whatever side of an issue he thinks will get him the most press. He's been living on his POW laurels for far too long, and it's time someone took him down a notch. He would make an awful President, especially when compared to Bush - quick - name one principle that McCain stands for and refuses to budge on - and he stabbed his shipmates, the Swiftvets, in the back publicly and openly. (Ring any bells??)
Has everyone completely forgotten the Keating Savings and Loan mess? I haven't.
