Actions speak louder than words

A seemingly chastened George Bush talked about bipartisanship the day after the House fell to the Democrats. He did it again when Burns and Allen gave the Senate to the Democrats too.

But as always, it's more important to track the deed, not the words of the Prevaricator-in-Chief. His decision to put forward six previously blocked judicial nominees shows how shallow the promises were. Particularly since the nominations don't stand a chance in the lame duck session, let alone in a newly reconstituted Senate next year.

But if that isn't enough -- how about the speculation that he intends to bypass the process altogether and keep John Bolton at the UN.

This may be a case of don't trust and verify.
