The Smartest Thing a Republican Has Said in a Month

chuckhagel.gifThis quote is from Nebraska Senator Chuck Hagel, who is kind of like John McCain used to be before John McCain turned into a generic Republican.

Sen. Chuck Hagel of Nebraska on Wednesday became the nation’s most prominent Republican officeholder to publicly question whether Sarah Palin has the experience to serve as president.
“She doesn’t have any foreign policy credentials,” Hagel said in an interview. “You get a passport for the first time in your life last year? I mean, I don’t know what you can say. You can’t say anything.”…
“I think they ought to be just honest about it and stop the nonsense about, ‘I look out my window and I see Russia and so therefore I know something about Russia,’” he said. “That kind of thing is insulting to the American people.”

This is what a retiring Republican has had to resort to: Honesty and candor. Get this man a seat in your cabinet, Barack.

You're joking Dustin, but you're not...he probably *will* be in Obama's cabinet, buzz is as of Secretary of State. And that's just fine by me...as long as he doesn't get any say over social issues, Hagel's alright.
