"No, really. The first time was heaven,
and I wouldn't want to ruin the memories."

I did call, I did write, Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice said yesterday in a letter to House Oversight and Government Reform Chairman Henry A. Waxman (D-Calif.).

Waxman, Loop fans may recall, wrote to Rice last week saying that she had not responded to many of his letters over the years asking about the administration's bogus claims that Iraq wanted to buy uranium from Niger, how it handled classified information and other matters.

Because she hadn't responded, Waxman on Friday sent her an invitation to come up to the Hill for a hearing on April 18.

But yesterday, in a lengthy missive on her behalf by Jeffrey T. Bergner, assistant secretary for legislative affairs, the State Department said she has been quite responsive.

You say responsive, I say bullshit.

They really think that this dancing around is going to get them anywhere?
Just like with the Fox recess appointment, I think this administration is going to be sorely disappointed.

Now that the D's are in the majority, they are not going to hesitate to use their power (and smarts) to get what they want.

Get those dancing shoes shined up Condi, Henry Waxman is a'calling.

Yes, the idea of Henry Waxman and John Conyers with subpeona power . . . well, isn't that the loveliest idea of all?

Waxman's almost as much of a bulldog as Cliff "Bulldog" Schecter is. My, my.

And Conyers never gives up.

This makes GottaLaff a very happy commenter.
