Calypso Congressmen

In today's brief cloture vote in the confirmation process of Samuel Alito to the Supreme Court, seventeen democrats voted with the reichpublican Borg, ensuring that all decisions Alito will be a part in are labeled as bipartisan and mainstream. Haven't these people learned that even if they support this administration, they will be used like call girls and told to go home? Most of them had nothing to lose in their electoral districts by taking a stand on principle, the blocking of the vote would have put Bush and his team off-balance for the State of the Union address, and would have required them to work overtime to counterbalance the effects of democratic unity at a time when republican politicians are not very highly regarded in the polls.

But no, seventeen democrats voted for a man who promises a bleak future for the United States of America.

I wonder if a lot of so-called democrats are really just paid sparring partners for the right. I suspect that we just saw several people do a spot-on impression of Jacques Cousteau and take a dive.
