How's that look in a headline?
There are about 300 press releases in Hastert's multi-million dollar press operation's archive with the word "hail" in the headline.
It just seems fitting that he would "hail" the end of the world as we know it, as it appears to be unfolding in the Middle East.
At some point today or tomorrow, I'm counting on someone in the GOP to blame Bill Clinton for this. At about the same time, you'll hear anger from the GOP when Democrats accurately state that this is a direct (albeit somewhat delayed) result of the Bush administration's refusal to get involved in Middle East negotiations.
