But the real kicker here is House Speaker Denny Hastert. When you read the following quote, I want you to think about Dick Cheney's refusal to give up information on who his energy panel talked to when forming public energy policy; I want you to think about Shrubby refusing to testify publicly and under oath to the 9/11 panel. Think about Condi Rice refusing to speak under oath to that same panel while still blabbing to every news camera that stands still long enough.
"We need to lean forward in making as much information available to the public as possible,'' Hastert, a Republican who represents Chicago-area suburbs and farms, said in a written statement."Let me repeat that:
"We need to lean forward in making as much information available to the public as possible,''
Is there another word for this beside unmitigated gall?
What an ass.
