Did you watch any of Monica Goodling’s testimony yesterday? I watched most of it. And other than her confession that she stepped over the line when she broke the law, that was about all there was to come out of it. Of course breaking the law is kind of a biggie, I would think. But, she added that she “didn’t mean to”. Try that one the next time you get pulled over for speeding. Just explain to the officer that yes, you were speeding, but you didn’t mean to. I’m sure the officer will understand.
The people of Utah should be so damned embarrassed. When it was Utah Republican, Chris Cannon’s, turn to question Ms Goodling, he took the opportunity to read from the newspaper about the comments Representative Murtha’s made to a Republican representative regarding earmarks. He used his entire allotted questioning time to read the article aloud. How’s that for using ones time wisely?
The Democrats asked, for the most part, pertinent questions while the Republicans seemed to want to kiss Ms Goodling’s boo boos and make everything all better. Those mean old Democrats asked questions and expected reasonable answers. Shame on them.
One Republican, and I can’t remember which one it was, apologized to her for her being questioned, since she is a Christian. In so many words he said he feared this was the beginning of things to come.
I don’t know if he is fearful that Christians will be required to take responsibility for their acts or if he is fearful Christians will be required to explain their deeds. But apparently questioning a Christian is not good and it leads to something worse, what that is, I am not quite sure. I suppose he believed that Christians should be immune from questioning.
