One of the sad things about the e-mail scandal is that it ISN'T surprising. It's a perfect example of that combination of arrogance, corruption and incompetence that we've all come to expect from the Bush administration.
Why WOULDN'T they use the Republican National Committee for official government communications? They actually DO think that the Federal Government is just an arm of the Republican Party.
They do everything with politics - and ONLY politics - as there sole consideration.
They started a war for the sake of politics. They've run it entirely on the basis of politics.
They've gotten American soldiers killed for purely political considerations.
They have decided to continue getting soldiers killed for political reasons.
They have a campaign manager making foreign policy decisions.
The only thing possibly worse than that? The fact that we have a bought-and-paid-for press that pretends that it's ok.
