I would just like to commend Mr. McCain for his short but sweet speech
on the floor of the senate today. He put it bluntly, saying that there
are better things to focus on that debating something that even Babs
Boxer admits was going to be a slam dunk.
I just wish he had stood during Kennedy's diatribe with an enraged "How
dare you...who the hell are you to comment on moral authority." Just
once someone should put that blow hard in his place.
In other news, Gonzales passed committee on a party line vote (10-8)
same as Ashcroft four years ago. Opposition (soon-to-be-called
insurgent) senators couldn't resist a few shots at Ashcroft in the
process. ""Even voting against him (Gonzales), he's a significant
improvement over the attorney general we have there now," said Sen.
