Democrats Continue to Embarrass Themselves

With the Democrats in the minority in both chambers of Congress and no sign of regaining either chamber anytime soon, 12 Democrats including Rep. John Conyers Jr. (D-Mich.), Rep. Maxine Waters (D-Calif.), Rep. James P. Moran Jr. (D-Va.) and Rep. Barney Frank (D-Mass.) played a game that I don't think I've played since elementary school: make-believe. They held a mock impeachment inquiry over the Iraq war with Conyers playing the role of the Committee Chairman. This mock inquiry had four witnesses testify including one witness, Ray McGovern, a former intelligence analyst, who said "that the United States went to war in Iraq for oil, Israel and military bases craved by administration 'neocons' so 'the United States and Israel could dominate that part of the world.'" I guess when Democrats want to embarrass themselves, they want to go all out. But hey the way the Democrats are behaving these days, there should be plenty of more opportunities for make-believe time.
