Sgt. Schultz and The Democratic Congress

Perhaps the most dispiriting aspect of the current season of denial is the view of Senators and Members of the House who claim they knew nothing of the intelligence, but simply trusted the President (and presumably his predicessor). How truly sad that their best current defense is declare their irresponsibility and failure to read the material sent to them by the White House and the Intelligence Community.

What the hell are they paid for if not to act as a check upon the Executive? I don't know how any member making such a claim, most especially the members of the House and Senate Intelligence Committees, can have the nerve to face their constituents for re-election.
