George who?

I don't like to say "I told you so" -- well, ok, let me stop right now, that's a lie, I do like to say it. Anyway, I did suggest several weeks ago that the Democrats should pounce on this ports deal and demagogue it to high heaven.

Our side has been tarred with somehow being soft on defense or soft on terrorism if we dare to raise a few questions about the constitutionality of wiretapping Americans without a warrant. Or point out that the war in Iraq was not only unnecessary, but has turned into a debacle.

Well, the Democrats did pounce on the ports issue and it resonated with the public (never underestimate the good old fashioned jingoism of the American people) and now the GOP Congress is running scared on the issue and ready to desert Boy George like the rats they are.

As The Times reports: "In a rebuke to the White House, House Republicans are moving aggressively to put the brakes on the takeover by a Dubai company of some port terminal operations in several large American cities, an effort that moved forward on Wednesday with broad bipartisan support."

There is no honor among thieves, you know.
