another lying republican

Maybe this is a bit boring by now, but once again a Republican is being investigated, this time for using her office to promote Republican chances in 2008 Congressional elections. But Lorita Doan, head of the General Services Administration, says that gosh, she just can't remember any of the pep rally, including the Power Point presentation. And she doesn't remember saying that her agency could help Republican candidates. What a damn shame.

I'm tempted to say that it is touching how the GOP is so willing to hire people with severe mental disabilities -- the inability to remember something from just a few months ago. But of course, this is just another case of a GOP official lying through her teeth to investigators and the American people. And again, like the firing of the eight US attorneys, this is all about the Republicans' eagerness to use the trappings of office to implement and perpetuate a one-party state, legalities be damned.

Remember how the GOP complained when donors slept in the Lincoln Room during Clinton's presidency? That seems, to use Alberto Gonzales' favorite word, "quaint" to the hardball GOP political tactics which as often as not seem to cross the line into illegality.
