Dean on Congress

A few days ago, Dean had 16 questions for Bush. Today, he has a few pointed questions for Congress.
Today, I ask some important questions of those in Congress who had the power to seek the truth nine months ago, who had the power to involve the American people in the debate prior to the Congressional vote, who had the power to ask the tough questions of the Administration, and yet voted to give the President blank check authority to go to war with Iraq anyway.
I conjectured earlier today that this was part of a strategy to get back at Kerry, who's been slamming Dean (without naming him) on foreign policy cred. I think Kerry is in error, but that's neither here nor there. But now, I'm not so sure that's what's going on. I wonder if maybe Dean is just really, really ticked off and wants some accountability, separate from the politics of it all.
