Hasn't Condi learned anything about making Jim Webb mad?

Go Jim Webb. Condi, you're an idiot.
Sen. Jim Webb (D-Va.) said yesterday that he is not satisfied with the Bush administration’s response to his inquiries on whether the White House believes its signing statement accompanying the 2002 Iraq war authorization gives the president authority to attack Iran.

Webb first wrote to Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice and newly confirmed deputy Secretary of State John Negroponte last month after a Rice appearance before the Senate Foreign Relations Committee. During questioning by Webb, Rice did not clearly state whether President Bush believes he can pursue action against Iran under his 2002 signing statement, which interprets the war authorization as a broad mandate to defend “threats to national interests.”

Webb said yesterday that he has heard from Rice and Negroponte, but that their responses were “lengthy and not to the point,” adding that he intends to pursue a clarification of presidential authority to use force in Iran in the near future.

So? Jim Webb is one Senator among 100? Who the fuck do you guys think he is, the only guy in this town with a war record?

Condi Rice is busy. Tell Jim Webb to stop flacking for the Iranians and help out for a change.

Thank Heavens we Have Jim Webb representing us rather than than dorky Bush robot that was in there before.

Jim is an experienced fighter and thank heavens George Bush himself is an incompetent idiot...a total failure. (even if he does hold the power of the presidency)

That gives our one Senator a fighting chance.

In that case, you'd think she would have been concise and responsive, rather than "lengthy and not to the point".
