Josh Marshall has a revealing view into where the Republicans’ priorities lie this year :
It all started earlier this evening when TPM Reader HH was on the receiving end of one of Dole’s blast emails begging contributions for the Republican senate committee.
Says Dole, in her pitch: “If Democrats take control of the Senate in ’06, they will cancel the Bush tax cuts, allow liberal activist judges to run our courts and undermine all Republican efforts to win the War on Terror. Even worse …” Now, here you know it’s got to be bad. Even I got a little worried and considered sending in some money since losing the War on Terror for America would already be a pretty bad thing for the Democrats to do. But … well, let’s rejoin Dole in mid-moonbat. “Even worse, they will call for endless congressional investigations and possibly call for the impeachment of President Bush!”
Even worse than undermining the War on Terror is the possibility of “investigations”. Wow. It makes sense that the GOP would be so terrified since they’re the ones who made the term “investigation” synonymous with “partisan witch-hunt”. Don’t worry, Sen. Dole. Just because your party is full of people who use the wheels of government to destroy their political enemies doesn’t mean everyone wants to short change the American people in an endless quest for power and money. Even if the Democrats won back both houses of Congress, they’d never in a million years be able to match the moral and ethical bankruptcy of the Starr Investigation.
