Ten Little Democrats

Agatha Christie presents her latest mystery--why are the Democrats in the U.S. Senate knocking themselves off one-by-one?

On Friday we found that Joe Biden, recently purchased along with MBNA by Bank of America, sent the following mash note along to his love Karen Hughes, who might just have helped out Valerie Plame, but what's an outed spy among friends?

“Mr. Chairman, I regret that previous commitments prevent me from attending the confirmation hearing this morning.

"I am particularly interested in and supportive of the nomination of Karen Hughes to be undersecretary of state for public diplomacy. What this job requires, among other things, is continuity. The last two undersecretaries have stayed six and 18 months, respectively.

I met with the nominee yesterday and understand that, barring unforeseen circumstances, she is willing to stay through the president’s term.

"I believe that she is highly qualified because of her professional background, and, importantly, enjoys the full confidence of the president and the secretary of state.

"She will bring new energy and creativity to our public diplomacy efforts. I commend the president for choosing her and persuading her to return to Washington, and I look forward to working with her for the next three years on this important foreign policy priority."

Ah, yes, she's creatively helped beat Democrats for years.

Today California's own Dianne Feinstein, according to an AP story:

Said the memos, which require Roberts to argue the position of the administration, aren't likely to be very important "unless it relates to confirming something that becomes a major question."

In preparation for confirmation hearings expected to begin at the end of August or beginning of September, Roberts met Monday with five senators, including Lieberman and Feinstein.

Feinstein emerged impressed with Roberts' ability to rule without "any extraneous points of bias."

"There is not a lot of controversy surrounding him. There just isn't," Feinstein said.

Who will be next to succumb to the death of his or her party's ideals?

Who will be left?

And is that Karl Rove in the Hillary Clinton mask? Bill probably wouldn't be able to tell himself, since even if they do still kiss, he'd probably assume that Karl-as-Hill was just giving him that "let's end welfare as we know it" tongue.

Yes, the Dem leaders are proving once again that they're inept and clueless. Any day now, I might burn my card.
