"Losing my faith in humanity ... one neocon at a time."

God bless Barbara Boxer. Also here. During her interview at Condi's hearing, she came in with a number of heavy hitters, including the following:

Boxer pointed out what she said were inconsistencies in Rice's statements about the imminent threat of nuclear weapons in Iraq.

"This is a pattern here of what I see from you," Boxer said. "It's very troubling. ... It's hard for me to let go of this war because people are still dying." She said Rice has not acknowledged those deaths, has not laid out an exit strategy for Iraq and has been unwilling to admit mistakes -- including going to war over weapons of mass destruction found later not to exist.

Rice insisted the war in Iraq was not launched solely over WMD. Saddam Hussein, she said, welcomed terrorists, attacked his own neighbors and paid suicide bombers in the conflict between Israel and Palestinians.

But Boxer said the bill passed by Congress authorizing the war in Iraq was, "WMD, period."

"Let's not rewrite history, its too soon for that," she said.

I have been waiting so long to hear ANYONE in a position of authority call out the Bush neocon cabal on the ongoing rewriting of history. The Bushie bloggers have been rewriting this already on a 24/7/365 basis ever since it became evident that the WMD story was a hoax. Boxer is living up to her name. She's a fighter in every sense of the word and shining a bright, painful light on these cockroaches.

Some more input from around Blogostan:

The Left Coaster has information on how Kerry is working this.

Political Wire reports a rather shocking quote from Joe Biden.
