"republicans"(in name only) cave to the minority

John McCain,R(hino)-Az. has just convinced 6 of his fellow R(hinos) to bend over and take it from the DemoncRat minority. Only McCain and Lindsey Graham had the guts to openly display their cowardice, but to you five others, you WILL be found out, and we WILL remember the next election cycle.

Lord Spatula says it all. I agree., with the sentiment, if not the florid rhetoric.

Hey, if its any consolation, many of us lefties hate the compromise too.

Thats just the problem Andy, it WASN'T a compremise, it was a capitulation. The phrase "to the victors go the spoils" no longer has any meaning in American politics; when the winners fear the losers, there no longer is reasonable compremise, but rule by the minority.

Bush the Elder found that out when he caved on his "no new taxes" pledge, and he payed dearly for it.

I read a little bit on this (well ok actually I scanned an article ... comment is limited to that small bit of information). Turns out Frist isn't party to the agreement and the "Constitutional Option" is still on the table.

Looks like this was nothing more than a dog-and-pony show geared toward making some people look good to their constituencies. Frist is apparently holding the line, as well he should.

I hope RWR is right, but the Manchurian Candidate can't be trusted by either side. RINO's all, I wonder if his sphincter muscle buddy Feingold is pulling the strings?. Maybe the reason McCain claims residence in Arizona is that he's to far out there to be admitted to Massachussetts, Ted and John won't allow a Maoist in their Marxist territory.

Oh come on you guys, you have to admit this is so much better than the nuclear option. First of all Frist got his ass kicked by a guy that couldn't beat Bush. That alone is worth the price of the show. Well that and seeing guys like Lord Spatula (and Rush Limbaugh and Pat Buchannan)nearly crap their pants their so pissed off. Yep this is more fun than a barrel of monkeys.
The weepugs lost nothing and the dem's gained nothing. The deal is nothing more than a delaying tactic. But it sure put Frist in a crappy spot. On top of all that I can just imagine Cheney's reaction. Cause I know he was all latered up and ready to play his piviotol role in the nuclear option . I'd bet he damn hear had a heart attack.
You gotta admire those 14 senators. They were all willing to schulp their own party leaders for their 15 minutes of fame.
Beside you people got nothing to worry about, when did Lieberman ever do anything good for his own party? In reality they should have said the deal was brokered by 6 senators from each party, one centralist and one traitor to his party. I suppose if I were a weepugs I'd kinda see McCain as a traitor to his party too.
How ever as a bonafide independent, I just see him as a genuine all American hero.
