Republicans shed last vestiges of logic and consistency. No, really!
"The answer is yes," Frist said when asked if he would act to change Senate procedures to restrict a Democratic filibuster. "Supreme Court justice nominees deserve an up-or-down vote, and it would be absolutely wrong to deny him that."
Um, I must have missed the up-or-down vote on Harriet Miers.
Time to say it: The Repubublicans aren't the party of ideas any more. They aren't about freedom; they have no core principles, not even bad principles; consistency and logic are no longer necessary for them.
Republicans are feral. They are solely, exactly, and completely about holding onto power by any means necessary.
NOTE Frist is in the "say anything" category. There is also the "do anything" category.
