Majority Rules

Republicans are going further than ever to take away the rights of the minority party in the Senate. Democrats have blocked the confirmation of only 10 of Bush's 229 judicial nominations. This is much less than the Republicans blocked in Clinton's second term. "If they, for whatever reason, decide to do this, it's not only wrong, they will rue the day they did it, because we will do whatever we can do to strike back," incoming Senate Democratic leader Harry M. Reid (Nev.) said last week. "I know procedures around here. And I know that there will still be Senate business conducted. But I will, for lack of a better word, screw things up." Just remember, you won't be the majority forever, and turnabout is fair-play! [Yahoo]

Meanwhile, John McCain (and the rest of the sane world) give a vote of "no-confidence" in Rummy. [Buzzflash]
The daughter of Strom Thurmond and his then 16-year old black maid speaks out. Just remember, as Al Franken says, "the pecker knows no bigotry." [Tribune]
Two careers ruined [NYT]
GOP "tough-guy" was having TWO affairs at the same time. [Buzzflash] And was corrupt as hell. [MSNBC] We almost let a guy that dropped out of High School in the ninth grade run the Department of Homeland Security...nice.
