More Rod Paige lies 

From body and soul:

I wonder how honest Republicans feel when their party keeps lying to them

The NYT has another article on the front page today on Republicans frustrated with Bush administration lies -- this time over the No Child Left Behind Act.

Last month, the Republican-controlled Virginia House of Delegates passed a resolution, 98 to 1, urging Congress to exempt Virginia from the law. That vote came after Rod Paige, the education secretary, and other administration officials met with Virginia lawmakers, said James H. Dillard II, chairman of the House Education Committee.

"Six of us met with Paige," Mr. Dillard, a Republican, said. "He looked us in the eye and said, `It's fully funded.' We looked him back in the eye and said, `We don't think so.' "

"We got platitudes and stonewalls, but no corrective action," he said.

When they look you in the eye and lie to you about an important issue, it's time to reconsider your plan to vote for them.

Amen, sistah. Amen.
