In my search for signs of intelligent life in the Federal government, I was pleased to see signs of it from the Right.

House Government Reform Committee Chairman Tom Davis (R-Va.) yesterday threatened to subpoena three members of the Bush Cabinet and White House counsel Harriet Miers if they do not comply with document requests issued by his select committee on Hurricane Katrina response.

Bottom line? We can't just let the Rightwingnuts destroy our Federal government while we're all distracted by body counts from Iraq. I'd like to see a full, open, and public debate on what government should and should not be. Because if Hurricane Katrina isn't the kind of massive disaster we have a Federal government to help cope with...well, we all need to agree to that up front.

Further, if we're going to destroy government support for education, healthcare, and the environment, I think the public should know that in advance. So let's halt the neocon dismantling of government domestic functions that don't support corporate power and let's talk about what we want the future to look like.
