Make that a trinity of my favorites. I haven’t seen NRO or Ramesh or Rich or myself defend tossing out Speaker Hastert. At 12:56 today, Ramesh mentioned “Republican negligence” and didn’t assign responsibility to Hastert. A little earlier Rich took exception with Tony Blankley because he was holding Hastert responsible for matters Hastert was unaware of. We should all be able to see clearly what people are saying here and now and when we do we’ll happily note our happy little group is in broad agreement.
