Get the popcorn ready.......
Whoare the members of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee?
"Whoare the members of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee? "
Never mind. Found it. ROFL... Kerry is on the committee. Wonder if he will ask Condi what her net worth is.
Richard G. Lugar
George V. Voinovich
John E. Sununu
Condi is the smartest women in any room she's in.
Paul S. Sarbanes
Christopher J. Dodd
John F. Kerry
Russell D. Feingold
We have quite a few RINOs serving, I see. Wonder if Kerry will show up? He's been so busy trashing the US that he may be too tired.
Let the preening and the self-serving speeches disguised as questions begin.
There is nothing in the universe that possesses less value than a United States Senator in front of a TV camera.
bump for 9am
Condi will eat them for breakfast. I hope she has that "I could kick every single one of your white asses" look on her face when she sits down.
It will be interesting to see what Chaffee says.
He'll probably pull a Bob Kerrey and do a 5 minute attack.
Might need to turn on the A/C..There will be a lot of hot air coming our way today.
Popcorn's ready here.
I am curious.... It is my understanding that it takes a bit of seniority to gain a chair on these committees.....right?
oops, sorry I got distracted by work......
I rather think he'll surprise us and actually show up for work for the first time in a while too. Camera time, you know. Probably had his facial last night in preparation.
Does anyone know where it can be heard on the net?
Elevation to star status trumps seniority in democrat circles. They have so few stars these days.
LOL! When she pulls that flip-flop out I'd love to see her smack those Dimbulbs up-side their fool heads.
I think we all said that same thing when Hillary got on the Senate Armed Services Committee
Thanks for the C-Span info.
The C-span link at post#1
Didn't Lamar Alexander run for higher office a few years ago? What a committee...is this the best we can do?
We can only hope that Coleman, Sununu, and Martinez comport themselves well. As for the others, it looks like a who's who of charlatan losers and peacocks.
Do we dare watch Biden and Dodd? Forget the popcorn, I'm going for a preemptive strike with a good anti-nausea elixir.
Or if he'll even show up for work today.
Must be Obama's extensive background in foreign relations. Cough....choke....
Off topic: Bishop freed in Iraqi kidnapping incident.
Or perhaps they just didn't want to be accused of holding a high-tech lynching...using Obama as their token and shield.
Be Seeing You,
Well, he did study the Qu'ran. Yes, shocking that didn't become an issue during the debates.
Just makes a person feel all warm and fuzzy, doesn't it? On another topic, what about Howie Dean possibly getting the DNC chair! And Bill Kristol says Bill&Hill want Weasley Clark to jump in the running.
I have to go get the car serviced before our trip next week. Will check back in.
Thank ya, I thought that was only for video!
Wonder if the RATS are going to fight this as a prelude to the hearings that will take place for Judgeships.
Obstruct early as a preemptive strike.
Your graphic shows what I'm doing right now. FNC reporting that attendance at Clinton's library is much lower than Reagan and Bush's libraries when they opened. Hah!
I think he and Mel Martinez (R, FL) are junior senators, and there is probably a chair reserved for a junior senator from each party.
Lamar's OK. He served in congress before and ran for president (remember the flannel shirt?). I think our team is OK except for Chaffee and the increasingly nauseating Hagel and Lugar. The rest are pretty darn good.
"It will be interesting to see what Chaffee says. He'll probably pull a Bob Kerrey and do a 5 minute attack."
Chaffee is a scared-witless, whiny little boy. He might attack, if he had the guts. More likely he will whine, whine, whine about how baaaaaaaad everything in the world is going, and pout that Papa Bush and Mama Rice haven't majically fixed the "booboos".
Gosh, I want to say my guess is Kerry won't be there.
But I hope he is so we can make fun of his haughty and unctous ways and watch Dr. Rice put him in his place.
Hmmmm....fair enough...but I must ponder the reason that Obama appears on all networks all the time, yet I would not recognize Mel Martinez in any situation.......Hmmmmmmmm...... GRIN!
LOL! You probably have hit the nail on the head.
What's wrong with Allen, Coleman, Murkowski, Voinovich, Martinez (who I'm really looking forward to seeing), Alexander and Sununu? I've seen them do well at other times and expect they'll do well today. Lugar can be awful but I've seen him do well, Chaffee can be a putz and Hagel makes me sick anymore, but to be fair, he can also do well when he wants to. Knowing the cameras are rolling I expect him to say something annoying, but I'd say overall our side of the committee is fine.
6am, pacific time? I want to see this! Go Condi!!
