Playing politics

Yesterday, Hillary Clinton, Harry Reid and others decided that the blame for the fact that an evil, egotistical dictator had (apparently) detonated a nuclear bomb belonged to President George W. Bush -- instead of the aforementioned evil, egotistical dictator.

Today, Sen. John McCain fired back.

"I would remind Senator (Hillary) Clinton and other Democrats critical of the Bush administration's policies that the framework agreement her husband's administration negotiated was a failure," McCain said at a news conference after a campaign appearance for Republican Senate candidate Mike Bouchard.

"The Koreans received millions and millions in energy assistance. They've diverted millions of dollars of food assistance to their military," he said.

Which laughably provoked this response from Sen. Clinton's spokesman.

"Now is not the time to play politics of the most dangerous kind - with our policy on North Korea," Philippe Reines, spokesman for Clinton, said in a statement.

Maybe your boss should've taken that advice before she opened her trap.

The fact is, that about the only thing the U.S. can do to rein in North Korea is to scare the Chinese into cracking down on their puppet state madman. How to do that? Get South Korea and Japan to build modest nuclear arsenals. Of course, that would never happen until those two nations felt sufficiently threatened by a nuclear North Korea.

Sometimes there's little you can do when an evil madman is determined to go nuclear.

Democrats would be much better off launching their verbal barbs at Kim Jong Il instead of President Bush.


"Nobody is above the law," unless you get held in contempt of Congress for lying about running guns to Mexico and your role in targeting conservatives with audits. You'll get off scot free but you'll get charged for it if you worked for Donald Trump

The most interesting thing in this article was the pass rates for his students on the AP Gov exam. They were abysmal. In 2019, 79 students took it. One passed. ONE!

He wasn't teaching civics with a left-wing slant. He was doing frosh dorm bullshitting.

The identity of the victims is worthy of mention in the headline, but not the identity of the suspect. That's because he's also Muslim, and Muslims can only be victims.
