This from CNN:
After hours of heated debate over President Bush's nomination of John Bolton as U.S. ambassador to the United Nations, Senate Republicans late Thursday failed in their bid to cut off debate over the nomination -- prompting Majority Leader Bill Frist to lampoon Democrats for engaging in "another period of obstruction."
GOI: The Ironic thing is that Mr. Dr. Senator Bill Frist (R) of Tennessee voted WITH the Democrats to keep the debate open!
Um, Bill? If indeed we are engaging in "another period of obstruction" as you said then YOU helped vote for that "period of obstruction."
Maybe Frist mistook the hippocratic oath he took as a physian to be a hypocrat's oath. OR maybe he has multiple personality disorder.
So much for Mr. Frist's "up or down" vote. Being fair, however, he had to vote with the democrats to use a procedural tactic to get his way on this vote in the future. Only someone would voted against cloture can move to vote for another cloture vote in the future. When democrats want to use a procedural vote (against those 3 "right-wing" judges) then they are wrong but when Frist does it then it is noble and just I guess (gags on vomits on the hypocracy).
Good luck becoming President.
If the Republicans want to speed up an "up or down" vote then why do they keep blocking John Bolton's records?!! Who's being the obstructionists here??
In any case, I am going to be the first to wave my sandals in the air and yell, "Flip-flop, flip-flop" should Frist be the Republican nominee for President in '08.
