Wow-that was fast.

As reported yesterday, the senate democrats have to get a note from the teacher in order to ask questions of the White House. And as predicted, the GOP didn't waste any time using this new found abuse of power to put the kaibash on the senate intelligence committee's investigation into pre war intelligence.

Angry about a leaked Democratic memo, the Republican leadership of the Senate
yesterday took the unusual step of canceling all business of the committee
investigating prewar intelligence on Iraq....

A committee meeting scheduled for yesterday was canceled, and none has been
scheduled for next week, according to a senior committee staff member.

Sen. John D. Rockefeller IV (W.Va.), the committee's ranking Democrat, said he
was "really disappointed" with the Republican action. "Whose advantage is it to derail
asking the tough questions on prewar intelligence and the use and misuse of it?" he asked.

To whose advantage indeed......
