Barbara Boxer Not Backing Down

Even in the face of huge odds, and with little or no support from her more cowardly colleagues in the Senate, Barbara Boxer continues to tweak the noses of Dubya and the neocons. Her PAC is currently getting set for the confirmation hearings of Condi "Peter Principle" Rice as she prepares to make her majestic assent to the office of Secretary of State.

She is promising (and from her dramatic stand on the Ohio electoral votes I don't doubt her) to "ask the tough questions" during the Rice confirmation hearings. Among these:
  • Why did the United States go to war in Iraq based on misleading -- if not false and fraudulent -- evidence?

  • Why did we divert valuable resources and intelligence personnel to Iraq, taking them away from Afghanistan and the pursuit of Osama bin Laden?

  • Why did you mislead the American people into thinking there was a connection between Saddam Hussein and Al Qaida before September 11th?
She has a petition available online which you can sign to support her in shining a bright, piercing light on the cockroaches in the Bush kitchen. Giver her some love, people.
