Mailbag: Even Kempthorne Disagrees With Bush

James Bond: Seriously, though, you gotta love the current state of the Republican party, as exemplified by this news item of the day: Bush, a President battling popularity problems, nominates an Interior Secretary who publicly disagrees with Bush on a matter of policy. Do these people communicate? What a joke ...

DFO: Sounds as though Kempthorne, as a U.S. senator, supported selling off public lands. But even the Dirkmeister can read the tea leaves. Only one Idaho legislator among the 105 in the most Republican Legislature in the nation voted against a resolution denouncing the sale of public lands. Bush might not understand the ramifications of that overwhelming vote. But Dirk still is close enough to Western values to do so. BTW, I'm sure he cleared his stand with the prez before today's confirmation questioning.
