At Least We Know the Names of the Two Biggest Idiots in American Politics

As well as the name of the biggest hypocrite in congress:

Rep. Duncan Hunter, R-Calif., chairman of the House Armed Services Committee, said Democrats have in recent months been involved in a "hoax" to convince the public that the Bush administration had a secret, post-election plan for restoring the draft.

Rep. Ike Skelton, D-Mo., the top Democrat on that committee, accused Republican leaders of holding the vote just for political gain.

"We have seen something I haven't seen in 28 years in the House of Representatives — someone bringing a bill to the House they don't support," Skelton said.

[Rep. Charles] Rangel voted against his own bill because it was not subjected to hearings and testimony from Bush administration officials. "This is hypocrisy of the worst kind," he said. "I would not encourage any Democrat running for re-election to vote for this bill."

Only Democratic Reps. John Murtha of Pennsylvania and Pete Stark of California voted for it.
