The recent dust-up by Republicans is such a sad little movie. Shocked to their socks about the behavior of Nancy Pelosi, who was told about their sins of torture . . and did nothing about it! Do they prefer she blew the whistle? Or plugged her ears? C’mon, they don’t prefer anything. Pelosi is the straw they grab as their car goes off the cliff. And a pretty weak straw. Besides, now they force themselves to ask for an investigation. Yes, at long last an investigation. Let’s have justice for Nancy and Dick and Rummy and Gonzo and yep, W. What’s good for the goose is good for the gangsters.
This piece on Pelosi’s leftward march on Obama for a recent Newsweek, jiggered for the web by enhanced illustration techniques. (Is this torture?)
