Democrats with balls…and one who just licks them

Somebody handed out some huevos this morning:

Sen. Edward M. Kennedy and other Democrats assailed President Bush’s decision to go to war with Iraq Tuesday and declared they would oppose Condoleezza Rice’s nomination as secretary of state as a principal architect of a failed policy.

Kennedy, of Massachusetts, keyed the Democratic attack with charges that Rice, as Bush’s national security adviser, provided Congress with “false reasons” for going to war. Had she not, he said in a speech, “it might have changed the course of history.”

Sen. Mark Dayton, D-Minn., following up, accused the Bush administration of lying and said he was voting against Rice’s confirmation as a way of trying to stop mistruths.

And Sen. Carl Levin, D-Mich., charged she concealed the Central Intelligence Agency’s skepticism that Iraq was trying to obtain uranium for a nuclear weapons program from Africa.

Rice claimed there was a “consensus” within the administration on on Iraq’s activity when the Department of Energy and the State Department had reservations. “She exaggerated and distorted the facts,” Levin said.

But, and there is always a but:

Sen. Joseph Lieberman, D-Conn., spoke in Rice’s favor.

Looks like someone is going to get a good scratching under the chin from the President. Good boy! Gooooooood boy! Now, fetch!…
