Is Steny Hoyer stoned on some psychedelic drug? Because that's the only explanation for the second ranking Democrat in the House saying that things could "lead to a disaster" in Iraq.

If we were to start being honest, we would simply stop calling America "the greatest democracy in the world," because what it has become in recent years is anything but democracy.

Sometimes you just have to just laugh at Rush Limbaugh. Here's a guy who dodged the Vietnam War draft by citing a cyst on his ass and yet he accuses Vietnam War heroes essentially of treason.
Hoyer is waging a not-so-secret, but oh-so-self-serving campaign to topple Pelosi and assume the top job in the Democratic Caucus. And he's waging his campaign even though it is destroying his own party.
