Plame Hearing on Friday
Did this get posted? I don't know.

Yes Virginia, we can walk and chew gum at the same time.

Not to be diverted by the business of vetting the Supreme Court nominee, the U.S. Senate Democratic Policy Committee (DPC) and the U.S. House Government Reform Committee Minority announced that they will conduct a joint hearing on Friday to examine the national security to examine the national security implications of disclosing the identity of a covert intelligence officer. The hearing will be co-chaired by Senate DPC Chairman Byron Dorgan (D-ND), and U.S. Rep. Henry A. Waxman (D-CA), the Ranking Member of the House Government Reform Committee.

Former intelligence officers and analysts will discuss the impact of such disclosures, and have stated in a letter to the leadership that public statements thus far reveal an astonishing ignorance of the intelligence community and the role of cover.

7. That's why you vote Democratic
To be able to set the agenda and bring these kinds of issues to the floor.

Instead of helping to focus attention, and see when we get subpoena power again.

I simply added to your point about the importance of electing Democrats. Why you feel a need to be nasty about it, I can't imagine.

ps My Rove LTTE was published today. Thanks for your support.

17. based on your first post
It sounded like additional snarkiness, not an additional point. Sorry if I misinterpreted.

Excellent news on your Rove letter!!

19. That last part of your line is a "You Betcha!"
Thanks for the optimistic views. Ok. Feelin' better because like you said, "WE ARE THE AMERICAN PEOPLE!"

Yeah... repeat after Just Me... "WE - ARE - THE - AMERICAN - PEOPLE!" And for added measure, "FROM THE REALITY BASE" at that!

6. Dorgan does excellent presentations- he was on CSpan about FDA
Dorgan is very impressive in his demeanor and ability to present facts in a rational nonpartisan fashion while being very hard hitting against the Bush administration's failures, so this should be good.
