Hold Your Nose and Vote

Not to worry--I already sent a missive to Jim Sensenbrenner about this.

Investigations led by a Republican lawyer named Stuart W. Bowen Jr. in Iraq have sent American occupation officials to jail on bribery and conspiracy charges, exposed disastrously poor construction work by well-connected companies like Halliburton and Parsons, and discovered that the military did not properly track hundreds of thousands of weapons it shipped to Iraqi security forces.

And tucked away in a huge military authorization bill that President Bush signed two weeks ago is what some of Mr. Bowen’s supporters believe is his reward for repeatedly embarrassing the administration: a pink slip.

“Given that his office has performed important work and that much remains to be done,” Mr. Warner added, “I intend to join Senator Collins in consulting with our colleagues to extend his charter.”

If we're going to drop a couple or 50 billion dollars, I'd sure as Hell like to know that it wasn't pissed away.

Again, I don't know what your comments mean but it's interesting that a guy is fired for doing his job well.

I don't think my commentary is hard to figure out.

Keep trying.
