Too Little, Too Late
The Washington Post asserts that the Republican Congress may finally be fulfilling its Constitutional oversight duties:
But there have been indications that the Bush administration's long honeymoon with Congress, which was extended when lawmakers in both parties rallied around the president in the aftermath of the Sept. 11, 2001, attacks, may be nearing an end.Unfortunately, the Republican Congress won't get the chance to show the American people what it's made of. Little to no work is done in the legislature during an election year. Moreover, the "signs" of Republican reform are tepid, considering the enormous magnitude of administration lawlessness.
If John Ashcroft routinely spit in my face, I would get a little upset. Republican Senators: "Thank you General. May I have another."
