First there’s the turnaround of Republican Sen. Pat Roberts on the matter of U.S. intelligence agencies -- he’s now recommending changes even beyond that of the 9/11 commission. Then there’s the brutally sleazy effort against presidential candidate John Kerry by the Swift Boat Veterans for Doing Absolutely Anything to Keep John Kerry From Being President.

Add these things together and, well, I keep coming back to the same thought: How could the Democrats have allowed that odious deal over the Senate Intelligence Committee report? You know, the one where the Bush administration gets until after the election to face any heat on abusing intelligence and pulling the con job that got us mired in Iraq?

I must have missed it: What the hell were the Democrats thinking? Wouldn’t that second report be an important thing for voters to see before possibly giving George Bush a second term?
