Hawkeye GOP: Only Nixon (or Jim Leach) could go to China ...
Excerpted from this post at Hawkeye GOP
Only Nixon could go to China ... In Star Trek VI: The Undiscovered
Country, Mr. Spock quotes this old Vulcan proverb. This morning WHO
radio reports that former 2nd District Republican congressman, Jim
Leach may be the next United States Ambassador to China. Of course, on
this blog, I have referred to Jim Leach as a RINO and a traitor.
(Congressman Leach is the only person I have ever called a RINO on
these pages.) In that post, I also noted that I know Jim Leach
personally to be an honest man and a gentleman. So I find myself in
the strange position of applauding Obama's choice (or potential
choice) of Jim Leach for Ambassador to China.
