BuzzFlash's GOP Hypocrite Of The Week

Hey, it's Friday, which means it's time to check out BuzzFlash's "GOP Hypocrite Of The Week." And, despite the usual grueling process to narrow the selection to just one Republican hypocrite, BuzzFlash selects GOP leaders Dennis Hastert and Bill Frist.

An excerpt:

Well, the Curly and Moe of Republican leadership are at it again. Neither Bill Frist nor Dennis Hastert cared a whit about identifying who in the White House outed a CIA operative. You know, Valerie Plame, who specialized in tracking the illicit sales and trafficking in Weapons of Mass Destruction.

In fact, under their leadership, both the House and the Senate refused to investigate why the Bush Administration made America less secure by exposing someone who was an expert in WMDs. And Curly and Moe haven't done one darn thing to find out how Cheney and his ship of fools lied us into war.
