YARH (Yet Another Republican Hypocrite)

May 21st, 2009

As I have noted a few times recently, Republican Kit Bond is railing against Pelosi for have the utter temerity to claim that our “terror-fighters” in the CIA might be capable of fibbing.

But look a few years back, and you can find Bond himself calling a CIA operative, one responsible for hunting down WMD in fact, a liar. This actual terror-fighter’s name was Valerie Plame, and Bond thought she was fair game. He even called this CIA operative a liar because he claimed (falsely, as it turned out) that CIA documents contradicted her–the exact same claim Pelosi is making when she calls for the documentation of the briefings to be declassified to prove her true.

Of course, I have never held that Republicans are guilty of the vice of consistency.
