The Finch Formerly Known As Gold

Istook in the mud

When Rep. Dana Rohrabacher (R-CA) starts his investigation into the 1995 Oklahoma City bombing, apparently he won't get much support from the city's own Representative.

Said Congressman Ernest Istook:

I'm afraid we have to get used to this. Every few years someone wants to revisit the Kennedy assassination, and every few years someone will want to revisit the Murrah Building bombing. I feel for the families who have to relive tragic memories every time this happens.

"Avert your eyes, and let us never speak of this again." Remember, feelings trump truth.

I'm waiting for someone to pop up a link to the effect that "Istook" is actually an old Sanskrit word for "ostrich."
