A live link to an email form we can click to send to Hatch would be very apropos here, and most effective. Any one?

My question for this whole matter -- and I think it must be considered and the Dims called on the carpet:

If this had been a Republican leak and a Republican staff worker the dims would be screaming for the resignation of both.

Look at what happened to Trent Lott on a simple linguistic goof.

What's good for the goose (Republicans) is good for the gander (dims).

We need to push this point voiciferously! Call, fax or email your Senator!

Senators by state.

But the Utah Republican defended the committee's ranking Democrat, Sen. Jay Rockefeller, D-WV, saying he shouldn't have to resign as the committee's vice chairman even if he's found have authorized staffers to prepare the bombshell document.

Even if? Oh, Orrin, shut your hatch!

With scathing rhetoric like that, no wonder Hatch is Sumner Redstone's (lefty Viacom chief's) favorite senator .

"Despite the national security breach, Hatch said it would be unwise for the White House to stop cooperating with committee Democrats, saying he feared that the press wouldn't permit it."

Sounds like Hatch also puts his party before national security. Since when we do put what the press wants above our security?

Reid's lame excuse that some Republican swiped this treasonous memo from a Dem's desktop is unbelievable....It speaks volumes.

My comment is this. Perhaps Sen. Hatch sees a new Vice Chairman (woman) that would replace Rockefeller as one Hillary Clintoon. I can understand his reluctance to pursue that as the end result... Am I off base with this thinking? k2afe

Your comment set off all kinds of bells and whistles in my head!

We've all suspected Hillary! is behind this memo. How about this scenario:

Hillary! devises the plan to use the Intelligence Committee for opposition research to use against the President and the Republicans. She convinces Rockefeller that the only way they can take the WH is to stir up enough dust about our reasons for going to war. A memo is produced outlining their stategy and distributed to the democrat members of the committee.

Hannity has said that we'd "be surprised" who leaked the memo to him. Suppose it came from Hillary!'s office as a means of getting rid of Rockefeller so she can become vice-chair of the committee? Would it be the first time a Clinton double crossed one of their own to gain more power?

</idle speculation>

I say give Hatch a rifle and make him walk down Baghdad streets for a couple of months.

It will never happen. But it is certainly worth looking at nominating some of our brave defenders who have walked the streets and driven the roads of Iraq to run against the Hatch's, Rockefellers, Byrd's, Spector's and so on. They would need debate training, financial backing and good campaign management.

We could start with Patrick Miller who was the real hero in the Jessica Lynch saga.

Our elected officials need not be brilliant, need not be graduates of law schools, need not have a long record of public service. They need only be likeable with discernable good judgement, have ability to select knowledgeable and competent staff, be willing to take on and expose their adversaries schemes and be able to let supporters know where they stand.

I would love to see a U.S. Army hero without political experience, without pretense and learned cunning run against Rockefeller on pure principles of patriotism.
