FWST on the videotape kerfuffle
The Fort Worth Star-Telegram ed board doesn't like Carole. And it doesn't look like they're happy with Rick either:
The pettiness of party politics has never been so evident as in the feigned outcry from some state Republican leaders about a recent joint appearance by Sens. Kay Bailey Hutchison, R-Texas, and Hillary Rodham Clinton, D-N.Y.


What is more disturbing and alarming is that these party leaders find it objectionable that two members of the U.S. Senate can show respect and common courtesy for each other. These are traits that are becoming more and more rare among our nation's top elected officials. Rather than rue such behavior we ought to rejoice in it.

It is also regrettable that the Perry campaign finds it necessary to hire camera crews to tail the senior senator from Texas, and then use the video footage to try to paint her as a demon.

Although Hutchison may one day become a political challenger, Perry and all other candidates should know that Texans expect better from those they elect to represent them.

Hutchison and Clinton should be applauded for working together, for they are proving what others in Congress must learn: Common decency and cooperation should be the norm on Capitol Hill, not the exception.

Those of either political party who don't understand that should be put on notice that it is they who should be declared obsolete and, therefore, unfit to serve us.
