This little beauty ran in the Times yesterday. Aside from the blaming the victim aspect, isn’t it kind of wonderful that the fools running Congress are incapable of running a small boarding school? But at least LaHood admits it, and acceptance is the first step. Maybe he and his pals in the House “leadership” should carry his suggestion a little further by abolishing Bush’s occupation of Iraq.
Straining to hold the party together five weeks from Election Day amid unfolding revelations about the case, Mr. Hastert and his leadership team held a conference call with House Republicans on Monday night and heard blunt advice and criticism from participants who pressed for further action to reassure voters.
“This is a political problem, and we need to step up and do something dramatic,” Representative Ray LaHood of Illinois said afterward, adding that he had proposed abolishing the Congressional page program.
