Republicans on the Attack

REPUBLICANS ON THE ATTACK….Jeez, leave the computer for a little while and Republicans go nuts. Rick Santorum is blaming “cultural liberalism” for priestly pedophile; Joe Barton is harassing scientists who have the temerity to publish results he finds inconvenient; Tom Davis is, um, suggesting that Major League Baseball should know better than to sell a team to a known liberal; and Tom DeLay has petulantly declined to show up for his weekly Q&A because Democrats keep insisting that the House Ethics Committee ought to conduct actual ethics invesigations.

Have I missed anything? Honest, I was only gone for three hours.
