Senate Confirms Rice

The Senate has just voted to confirm Dr. Condaleeza Rice as Sec. of State. The vote was 85 voting for and 13 voting against. Included in those voting no were John Kerry, Ted Kennedy and Barbara Boxer. The debate over Dr. Rice’s confirmation lasted hours, which gave the Democrats plenty of time to bring even more shame to their party by having their members call her a liar, and accuse her of deliberately misleading the American people.

Despite all of this her confirmation was, as John McCain called it, a “foregone conclusion”, which lead the Senator from Arizona to make this statement on the floor of the Senate:

“So I wonder why we are starting this new Congress with a protracted debate about a foregone conclusion,” McCain said. Since Rice is qualified for the job, he said, “I can only conclude that we are doing this for no other reason than because of lingering bitterness over the outcome of the election.”

Yes, bitter, sore, childish losers is a perfect description of the current Democratic Party, and their behavior toward Dr. Rice should make it obvious.

The Senate Judiciary Committee has also confirmed Alberto Gonzales as Attorney General in a straight party line vote.
