Rhetoric for rhetoric’s sake
Posted by: McQ on Tuesday, October 16, 2007

Jackie Kucinich, of The Hill, tells us:
Rep. Walter Jones’s (N.C.) position on the Iraq war is likely to keep him out of the Armed Services Committee’s Republican leadership despite his seniority, as the panel’s ranking member mulls who will succeed former Rep. Jo Ann Davis (R-Va.) as Readiness subcommittee ranking member, according to sources on both sides of the aisle.
The Booman Tribune gets all puffed up and remarks:
Never mind the idea that a member of the House should be free to express their conscience over matters of war and peace, life and death. If you don't love the war, you don't get to keep your seniority.
How short the collective memory is these days:
"Pelosi has also all but decided she will not name the ranking Democrat on the House intelligence committee, Rep. Jane Harman (D-CA) to chair that panel next year, a decision pregnant with personal animus," Jonathan Weisman writes for the Post.

[...]

"Pelosi has nursed a well-publicized grudge against her fellow California Democrat because she believes Harman has not been a tough enough critic of President Bush on security matters...
Yup, never mind "the idea that a member of the House should be free to express their conscience", huh?
