For some reason--on the Chris Matthews show this morning--I was convinced that on a panel that included both Joe Klein and Andrew Sullivan, Cynthia Tucker, the Editorial Page Editor of the Atlanta Journal-Constitution, would be the sane one on the issue of Iraq.
Alas, I was mistaken.
While defending Hillary Clinton's vote for giving President Bush a blank check in Iraq, she had to go and say something completely idiotic like "every serious Democrat" voted in favor of giving President Bush the authority to go and screw up the entire Middle East.
Really Cynthia? Perhaps you should put a call in to former Democratic Senator Bob Graham, Chairman of The Senate Intelligence Committee at that time, who not only opposed the joint resolution but implored his colleagues to do the same based upon what he knew. You might want to also explain how Carl Levin, Pat Leahy and Russ Feingold, among others, are not "serious" in your book.
