Senator Nelson, I could've sworn that the Department of State
was solely responsible for representing the United States to foreign governments. Why would you bother to meet with a known
sponsor terrorism, other than to somehow improve your party's chances of success
in the 2008 elections?
To think that a mere 40 years ago, such actions were still identified as what they are:HIGH TREASONUpdate:
Provided a picture of the happy couple, above.
Here is the Dishonourable Nelson's side of the story
. Even as a future member of the Senate Intelligence Committee, there is no precedence for Senators conducting the foreign policy
of the nation, is there? Why else would the Congress have created the Department of State
, anyway??Update again:
Condoleeza Rice has reiterated that direct talks with the terrorist supporters
in Syria and Iran are not on the table
. Is the Congress planning on pursuing its own foreign policy, wholly seperate and distinct from the Executive Branch's? If so, can they please consider seceding into their own nation
to do so, so they don't get the rest of us killed?And yet again:
I'm very pleased to report that Doug Ross has fired up the ol' trusty Blogotronicâ¢ recorder
and presented us with an unofficial transcript of the surely
intellectual depths that these two reached. My favorite part:
Not to worry. It's off the record as far as I'm concerned. One last thing: I wanted to present a gift on the behalf of the people of the great state of Florida... It's an NCAA Championship Basketball autographed by the Florida Gators!
Thanks, Doug! It's fitting for the Senator to prefer the Gators, though I hope for the Booster's sake that Assad is, truly, not an FSU fan.
