Something is up. Something really really big is going on. One Republican in one committee of the Congress has, for the first time since Bush's election, actually decided to perform some oversight of something that the Bush administration has done. I know this sounds snarky and sarcastic, but I think this really is the very first time. See The Left Coaster: Rumsfeld Subpoenaed!

Didn't the supreme court point out in its ruling on the treatment of "terrorist" prisoners that the congress wasn't providing proper oversight? They didn't get slapped as firmly (or semi-firmly, anyway) as the administration, but this was a warning. I wonder if that's not what's behind a Republican congressman actually doing something, but frankly I'm not counting on anything more than a white wash.
