Boy Genius Bobby is gonna have to go back to the drawing board on his voucher debacle!!!!

How can you defend Rice given her conflict of interest on Keystone? Just because the Republicans are attacking her does not make her worthy.

she tows the party line.

No. You're better than this.

She toes the party line.

The metaphor is the moment before the start of a footrace,
when one toe over the line disqualifies the runner.
It says she adheres strictly to the exact letter of the party's official policies,
and never says anything to contradict them in the slightest.

It says nothing about advocacy or evangelism, (which I assume is the motivating metaphor for "tow the line", somehow)

Yes, I'm an annoying pedant.
You can also reliably set me off by writing "hone in on".

The Benghazi business is crap, but I'd have questions about Rice's Keystone connections. Attacks from both sides? Perhaps Obama should move on.

Oops Joel. You are correct. Gonna change it. You win.

Collins is out at the end of this term, right? I imagine she is "playing along" to secure her future employment at some conservative think tank, lobbying firm, or at Fox News.

By the way, I just ran across this item from last summer. I had no idea Collins was never married until a few months ago, and that she married a guy for whom she used to work as an intern. Not saying there's anything weird about it, I just never knew this.

So McGrumpy, who didn't even bother to attend the Benghazi hearing/briefing, is jumping up and down that in the midst of developing news (where it would take quite some time to figure out what actually happened), what Rice said was accurate for the information she had at the time.

When is he gonna start complaining that having boatloads of information which had been well sifted through, we had clear, incontrovertable proof of WMDS ?

Obama could try to nominate Bolton and they'd still complain. (Just look at how Boehner is painting himself inro a corner over the budget. First saying Obama should present a solution. Obama presents one and Boehner says that talks at a stalemate even though Reid et all are still ready to talk.).

people don't live their investment portfolio.

collins only SOUNDS moderate.
