Shouldn’t news be timely, interesting, and tell you something you didn’t already know? That’s always been my definition of news, but I guess I’m alone in this. I wasn’t surprised when another Kennedy had substance abuse problems and crashed a car. I’m also not terribly surprised to hear that John Kerry is troubled by Bush picking Hayden. Heck, Kerry is troubled by damn near everything Bush does.
If you’re the President, and you’re going to nominate someone to a high level job in intelligence gathering, do you really want someone who is going to oppose your belief system and fight you on everything you’re trying to do? No! That’s why we have the Democrats in Congress.
