Pelosi Joins Irey Campaign Team

In a gesture of bipartisanship, GOP candidate Diana Irey welcomed Nancy Pelosi to her campaign team. Here's Pelosi's official statement on the Hamdan vs. Rumsfeld ruling:
"Today’s Supreme Court decision reaffirms the American ideal that all are entitled to the basic guarantees of our justice system. This is a triumph for the rule of law. The rights of due process are among our most cherished liberties, and today’s decision is…a reminder of our responsibility to protect both the American people and our Constitutional rights. We cannot allow the values on which our country was founded to become a casualty in the war on terrorism."
Here's Ms. Irey's reaction to Ms. Pelosi's statement:
I welcome Ms. Pelosi to the Irey Campaign Team, and hereby deputize her as a Colonel in the Irey Army, because in releasing that statement, she rebukes Jack Murtha for his reckless condemnation of U.S. Marines at Haditha and his unilateral decision to deprive them of THEIR rights of due process.
Jack Murtha declared on May 17 that our Marines had ‘killed innocent civilians in cold blood’, before the first Marine was charged, before the first court-martial was convened, before the first soldier was convicted. When he did that, he deprived our own soldiers of the very rights to due process that Nancy Pelosi extols.
In the spirit of bipartisanship, I'd like to congratulate Ms. Pelosi for her putting a higher priority on the rule of law than on partisanship.
