Can’t Wash The Blood Off Of Their Hands

This is, um…Pryce-less.

As she fights for her political life, Ohio Republican Rep. Deborah Pryce distanced herself Thursday from the Iraq war, telling CNN Radio, “What’s happening in Iraq is not a direct reflection on me.”

The seven-term representative is the House Republican Caucus chairwoman, the fourth highest-ranking position in the House.


Pryce made the remark Tuesday in an interview at a Columbus, Ohio, factory. When pressed by CNN on whether her position as a House leader connected her to the volatile situation in Iraq, Pryce objected to the interruption of her remarks and said the interview was over.

“Thanks, I’m done,” Pryce said. She expressed frustration and walked away saying, “Maybe we’ll call you later when I’m feeling better.”

  1. I’d say she’s a little touchy, no? What did these peole think in the run up to the election, that the issue of Iraq would not be a ball of fire and that they could run from the shadow it cast over them?

  2. Like all good republikkkans following the bootstraps of mr. and mrs. dumbya will tell ya: “You can’t have healthy debate and disagreement during a time of war!!!”

  3. When did she ever take a position on an Iraq policy matter that was different from the rest of the Republican leadership? When did she vote against war appropriations? When did she offer amendments to redeploy troops? When, in the only way that Congress has constitutionally that counts, did she act or vote to de-fund the Iraq war? Can’t think of an example? Then, Ms. Pryce, it is your war too.
