01/31/2006: Gem o'the Day:
I woke up thinking about yesterday’s cloture vote. What’s stuck with me is listening to one Republican after another talk in the Senate about the potential filabuster being ‘partisan’ politics, pandering to ‘extremist groups.’
How does that complaint work exactly? The Republicans voted as a block. Isn’t that ‘partisan’ politics? The Alito Nomination is clearly a response to the Religious Right. Isn’t that pandering to ‘extremist groups’?
Is ’spin’ all there is?
