Her. If the reports are true, her. Hippie protesters are usually just annoying and sometimes amusing. Thanks for the heads-up Moe. If I ever move to her district, I'll be voting Democrat.

Have we realized yet that (sections of) Florida aren't really part of the United States? Its their own little world down there.

Having read Sam Dealey's article, I suppose it's possible that Rep. Ileana Ros-Lehtinen is right and the U.S. State Dept is wrong. I imagine it's possible that she's right and the U.S. intelligence and diplomatic community is wrong. I guess it's possible that she's right and Reps. Henry Hyde and Tom Lantos, the chairman and ranking member of the House International Relations Committe (respectively) are wrong. I suspect it's possible that she's right and Mike Craft, a counterterrorism official with the U.S. State Dept is wrong. I presume it's possible that she's right and Middle East scholars, including Michael Ledeen of the American Enterprise Institue, are wrong. I daresay it's possible that she's right and Dan Brumberg of the Carnegie Endowment for International Peace is wrong. I assume it's possible that she's right and Elahe Hicks of Human Rights Watch is wrong. I reckon it's possible that she's right and James Phillips of the Heritage Foundation is wrong.

But I doubt it.

Especially when you consider that the individuals and groups that disagree with her on this issue pretty much cover the entire political spectrum, from right to left and back again.

Consider also the comments she has made:

She has referred to a State Dept spokesman as a "weasel" and a "gutless bureaucrat".

She accuses the U.S. Government of “kowtowing to a regime” in Iran and being "an apologist for this regime” in Iran.

She has dismissed U.S. intelligence reports of the group’s involvement in Hussein campaigns against Kurds and Shiites as “hogwash” and “part of the Khatami propaganda machine.”

So, in her opinion, the U.S. government is nothing more than a cog in Iran's propaganda machine, kowtowing to their current rulers, spewing hogwash, and employing weasels and gutless bureaucrats to state their positions.

Which of course, begs the question:

If she doesn't trust the information that she receives from her own government, whose government does this U.S. Congresswoman turn to for information?

If you were a Florida voter, you'd be old, confused, and worried more about whether it'll be sunny tomorrow.
