RE: What a disgrace to Americans and Democrats...
She's being roundly condemned by Democrats. She has no defenders. We live in a democracy. The people who live in her district sent someone who represents what they are all about. Her actions are their problem now. But tell me, after a month that started with the VP shooting someone in the face, followed by various aides being arrested for shop lifting, child molesting and now leaking classified intelligence for political damage, isn't some crazy bitch slapping a cop pretty minor in comparision? In the end, she'll pay more than Cheney will - a guy who got drunk and shot somebody.
Recall that earlier generations faced down fascism and communism not just with missiles and tanks, but with sturdy alliances and enduring convictions. They understood that our power alone cannot protect us, nor does it entitle us to do as we please. Instead, they knew that our power grows through its prudent use; our security emanates from the justness of our cause, the force of our example, the tempering qualities of humility and restraint.
