WAR/POLITICS: No Excuses

I'm just in a war & politics mood today . . .

Howard Kurtz has a great column today with all sorts of fun tidbits, including Tom Harkin's Watergate, which is welcome news in the tight Senate balance. I loved this quote:

"U.S. Sen. Tom Harkin of Iowa apologized yesterday for his campaign's role in passing along a transcript of a secretly taped meeting involving his election opponent. The aide who released the transcript acted independently, without the approval of Harkin or his campaign manager, the senator said. "'I make no excuses,' Harkin said in an interview with The Des Moines Register. 'I am the captain of the ship, and I take responsibility, and I apologize for it. These things shouldn't happen like that.'"

Yup, no excuses, except he acted alone, he didn't tell us, it was a junior staffer, . . .
