Like Spain, The Republicans Surrendered...
But let's talk more about the Republicans. They had total and complete victory in their hands, and they gave it up. (Neil)
REPUBLICANS BUCKLE (Michelle Malkin)
Yup, We're A Party Of Losers. (Dave)
Thank you, John McCain, for continuing to care so much about liberal media opinion and for continuing to suffer under the delusion that we're going to allow a Napoleon-complexed strutting peacock like you to be our President. (Ace)
My take... a few weeks ago we were all relieved when Tony Blair received the blessing of his people to stay in office. Many out there realized that Spain was indeed the only nation who caved to the anti-war, anti-democracy, anti-freedom fringe. Spain was the only nation to cower in fear of its enemies even though it was on the winning side.
To me, the Republican buckle on judicial nominees is similar to Spain's surrender to Al-Qaeda. Both had victory in their grasp... both had the moral authority and the law on their side... and in the end, both caved in to the side that has been losing since 11 September.
I won't give into the temptation of disavowing my party, but it will take years... and it will take the development of true leadership on the Right before I ever lift a finger for the party again.
January 2001, Batter UP!
Out of control spending was STRIKE 1.
Immigration was STRIKE 2.
Lack of leadership in Congress, FOUL BALL.
Giving in to the losing party bent on our destruction, STRIKE 3.
UPDATE: If you think I've said the Dems are equal to Al Qaeda, time to change your meds. The Dems are not mudering bastards. They are losers though... at least in the election realm, having lost every major federal election after 1996. Why then do the Repubs act like the losing party and the Dems rush in to fill the power vacuum?

Your renumberation ala baseball hits it out of the park. heehee. Bad - I know. The Democrats won this battle decisively and I believe John McCain a had major hand in this defeat of the Republicans. Leadership from Frist (who SHOULD be more like Tom Delay) was lacking. I haven't seen the Republican Senate come up with a REAL leader in my time. They are always TOO nice and accomodating to the other side. I wouldn't vote for a Democrat (not even Zell Miller if he was in the Democrat Party) but I also would think awfully hard before donating any cash to the Pubs or shoes to the pavement for a Pub Senator like I still would for a Rep I believed in. There is a huge loss of face and personal confidence from me to the Pub Senators. I'm also very tired of the spending sprees and illegal immigration reform obstruction in the Senate.11:55 AM
