Republicans at least, one Republican also stood up publicly this week to protest President Bushs Iraq policy.  And that Republican was Walter Jones of North Carolina.

I noticed this in one of the camera shots.  But I didnt see it reported in any of the mainstream media.

News reports said a group of Democratic Senators and Congressmen held their own hearing to hear from retired military officers criticizing Secretary Rumsfelds performance in office.

But there clearly in one of the pictures was Jones.

Now, Walter can be maddeningly contradictory.

When he was a Democratic state legislator, he made Democrats mad by joining the coalition with Republicans that elected Joe Mavretic speaker in 1989.

He made us doubly mad when he left the party to run for Congress as a Republican in 1994.

Now hes making Republicans mad by protesting Republican war policies.  And hes been a critic of Republican budget policies.

I once heard Walter say he was a Baptist whod converted to the Catholic Church and a Democrat who switched to the Republican Party and he was a lot happier with his choice of churches.
