Is Erica Kane going to be named Secretary of State now?

What the hell is going on with these Republicans? They seem to have a new little game - when one of them is caught in the act of screwing up, an evil twin sibling is blamed.

Isn't the evil twin usually a staple of daytime soap opera plot lines?

According to The Hill, Rep. Jean Schmidt, that delightful GOP congresswoman from Ohio, who badmouthed decorated war vet Rep. Jack Murtha (D-PA) on the floor of the House a few months back, apparently was once quoted in a newspaper article talking smack about young Republican activists.

Now, don't get me wrong - she actually made sense in her comments, saying: “They look like young Hitlers to me…They’re so grim and deadly serious about the cause. How are we going to attract mainstream kids to our party, kids who like to have fun and don’t take themselves so seriously?”

(Her spokesman) disputed that Schmidt made the comment, explaining that her twin sister, Jennifer Black, who was also mentioned in the paragraph, made the remark.

When asked to comment about her sister’s supposed remark, the spokesman replied, “I don’t work for her sister.”

An evil twin sister?

But it gets better. Now, according to TPM, that former White House aide who was arrested for shoplifting from Target last week, is trying to put the word out that it was actually his twin brother.

In an NPR interview, a reporter covering the story, said of Claude Allen: “He has an identical twin brother who even close friends can’t tell them apart when they see them. And people have seen him and close friends say that Mr. Allen has indicated to them that maybe his brother holds the key to this entire puzzling affair.”

Jesus H. Christ.

When Condi starts having an affair with an amnesia victim who turns out to be the long lost husband of Interior Secretary Gale Norton, who mysteriously disappeared many years ago, I guess we will know Bush land has officially become Pine Valley.

It figures. That was probably the only sensible thing Schmidt has ever said and she backtracked and blamed the EVIL TWIN!!! :)

Could Erica Kain do any worse than the dopes that are in there now? At least she would dress better.

It would be pretty funny if it wasn't so sad and scary that they all are in positions of influence and power.

I wonder if my friends would believe that I have a long lost, evil twin. So the time I borrowed an accidentally ripped my old roommates shirt can be blamed on my evil twin?

"Um, it was Emily's fault. Yeah, that's it, her name is Emily!"

I'm surprised Cheney didn't say it was his twin who shot that guy. Except you know Dick is the evil one.
