Three cheers for moderation. And 25 moderate Republicans in the House who have threatened to scuttle Denny Hastert's lust for George W. Bush's radical energy and economic agenda.
Notice the article does not mention the name of a single Democrat on the committee.
Along with all his Democrat-bashing invective, which drones on about how Democrats are difficult and have no plan (yawn...), Hastert and his committe chairs have effectively locked out Democrats from any discussion of any issue. Hastert's declaration last November leaves absolutely nothing to the imagination.
With 25 defectors in his midst, I wonder what Hastert will do now? Wait for Ken Mehlman's call? Bush's?
