fried rice

it was more than a little gratifying to watch the senate foreign relations committee grilling (frying) some condy rice the other day on c-span. I especially enjoyed watching senator boxer ream 'er a new one. boxer came down hard on bushco's "foreign relations" front woman because of bushco's latest strategy (or earliest?) of claiming the u.s. has a mission to rebuild the entire middle east! boxer said that's not what she signed on for when the war resolution was presented.

so forget that stuff about wmd, forget about the humanitarian liberation of the oppressed iraqi people, forget about spreading the holy word of democracy to the heathen moslem world---- what we're really in iraq for is just the beginning of a reconstruction of the middle east! Oh! that's what it was all about. of course, they couldn't tell us that in the first place--- either because bushco hadn't come up with the idea yet or because they knew no senator in his or her right mind would approve the war measure. (in my humble opinion, none of them were in their right minds for approving the war under any pretext.)
