Telling it like it is on Condi

Eric Alterman has real balls. Too bad more Democratic Senators didn't.
Who had the courage to vote against the first African-American female nominee for secretary of state merely because she has proven to be profoundly incompetent, incorrigibly dishonest, and absolutely unwilling to recognize, much less admit her many, many mistakes?

The Honor Roll:

Barbara Boxer, D-Calif.
Robert Byrd, D-W.Va.
Edward Kennedy, D-Mass.
John Kerry, D-Mass.
Carl Levin, D-Mich.
James Jeffords, I-Vt.
Jack Reed, D-R.I.
Mark Dayton, D-Minn.
Daniel Akaka, D-Hawaii
Evan Bayh, D-Ind.
Frank Lautenberg, D-N.J.
Tom Harkin, D-Iowa
Richard Durbin, D-Ill.
I am exceedingly disappointed that Jon Corzine voted for Helmet-Hair. (I'm disappointed that any Democratic Senator - hell, any Republican Senator - voted for her, but I'm from New Jersey and I really like Jon Corzine. Most of the time.)

Russ Feingold - what the hell are you doing, man? How can you vote for her? Barack Obama - I know she's a sistah, but still. You of all people don't have to worry about right-wing race-baiting if you vote against her. Schumer? Hillary?

Come on, folks, this isn't rocket science. Deferring to Bush because a president supposedly has a right to name a Cabinet of his choice - she was going to win no matter what you did - the Republicans would give up junkets to private hunting preserves before they denied anything to the Chimperor - but she's a trainwreck waiting to happen and the best thing you could do was refuse to keep shoveling coal into the engines.
