...for such a dreary, wet Wednesday. But unfortunately it didn't post to the blog. Grrr...I'm not in the mood for that nonsense today.
Here's a wrap-up of what I said: Tony Snow - gracious and dignified. Helen Thomas - bitter old hag.
House Judicial Committee hearing yesterday - faux on the serious side. They are all loons, on both sides. Calling FBI Director and Attorney General to testify? Impeach Attorney General option? The Republicans are eating their own. Good luck in November.
Former Senator and Treasury Secretary Lloyd Bentsen was laid to rest yesterday. The memorial service here was conducted at the First Presbyterian Church in the museum district. It was a lovely service and all very familar to me, as I was raised in the Presbyterian Church. Bill Clinton did a eulogy, raised a bit of political slurring, but just as you'd expect him to do. Still so little class from a former President. Hillary was there, too, as was John Kerry and all the Texas politicans. Kerry got a seat in the back, I should add. Even Tom DeLay had a better seat. The music and the solo vocalists were excellent.
Rest in peace, Senator.
