CHUCK HAGEL’S VERY BAD DAY. “The Left wanted Chuck to repudiate Bush’s Neo-Con War for Oil — the Jews! the Jews! — and instead he is forced to eat humble pie on national TV. Bad enough to have once made a few vaguely Stormfront-ish comments about Israel, but then to get up in front of a Senate hearing and deny everything . . . eh, it looks cowardly.”

Plus, the ghost of John Tower. “Though he was being asked about things he had said over the course of the past 15 years, it was what Hagel said yesterday — and how he said what he said — that had his defenders reeling in shock and even his critics aghast at how poorly he handled himself.”
