Democrats to investigate Republicans

Cal Thomas, in the Washington Times, tells us that the Democrats have announced plans to hold “hearings” during which they will examine the policies and conduct of the Bush administration. I thought we just finished such hearings in the form of an election campaign.
North Dakota Senator Byron Dorgan promises that the hearings will be “about oversight. . .not gotcha politics.” That’s a relief. During his press conference to announce the hearings, Dorgan held up a picture of Harry Truman. One suspects, however, that Truman’s ghost is more interested in an inquest into how the Democrats became so reluctant to confront hostile totalitarian regimes, and so eager to appeal to MoveOn.org and Michael Moore. One suspects, too, that the Democrats would profit more from such an inquest.
