Yesterday, Big Media Matt got his panties all in a bunch about the way the Instapundit had been treating the new Democratic Party hero, Richard Clarke. It appears Matt thought the Instapundit was treating Clarke unfairly.
Today, after hearing ‘rumors that today at the hearing Bob Kerrey, ostensibly a Democratic member, has been carrying water for the GOP,’ Big Media Matt shifts gears and decides that maybe discrediting people for past positions and behaviors really is a good thing when you don’t like their line of questioning or testimony.
And, for the record, Kerrey was as middle of the road in his questioning of all our Secretaries as anyone on the panel. Of course, Kerrey did not engage in the shameless political prostitution that Gorelick and Ben Veniste attempted, so maybe that is whathas Matt all pissy. You do know that failure to strictly toe the wildest of the DNC line is tantamount to treason.
All together now- consistency is for smaller minds.
I was watching the hearings off and on… I thought Kerrey was excellent- no real partisanship, just “how the hell did this happen, and how do we keep it from happening again?”
Gives me hope that there is still a sane Democrat left…
I wouldn’t get your hopes up, Scott. I’m afraid that Matt pretty much represents the current dominant views of the activist leadership of the Democrat party.

Wow–the left is taking shots at Bob Kerrey–prominent former Democratic Senator and Medal of Honor winner in Vietnam. I’ve never seen *that* before.
Oh, wait–I *have*. As I noted in comments here less than two days ago. How pathetic for them.

Amusing moment on Hannity & Colmes a few minutes ago: Clarke was saying that he had the impression that Condi Rice had never heard of Al-Queda when the subject first came up between them in early 2001. Hannity played a radio interview from October 2000 where Condi was calmly and intelligently talking about Bin Laden and Al-Queda.
Memo to Mr. Clarke: Get yourself a new batch of tea leaves, punk. You’ll have plenty of money coming in from the moonbats to afford it.
