It's all very well to get angry at McKinney for her
malicious allegations against Bush, but where was your
anger when Republicans were making malicious
allegations against Clinton? that he he murdered
Sudanese , attacked Iraq, etc. to distract attention
away from Lewinsky.

Mckinney is certifiable, but this forced outrage and
the pretense that Mckinney has any real power or
influence libels Democrats, not Bush. Incindentally,

no right to criticise Tom Daschle's patriotism,
especially when he had never served himself , lost it

heroic leadership we would never have lost Vietnam, it
was all the spineless, appeasing Democrat's fault, so
his refusal to serve in Vietnam was really a sort of
protest against Lyndon Johnson.
