They Want To Preserve This?

The Democrats are making a lot of noise about “preserving the traditions of free and unlimited debate” in the U.S. Senate. On its own that's a load of crap, they just don't want the Senate to approve qualified judges they don't like for political reasons. But have you ever wondered just what it is they are trying to preserve?

Radio Bloggger has an mp3 posted to give you a sense of what passes for debate in the “Greatest Deliberative Body.” I think we can do without preserving to much of this.

And consider this question. When can a Senator to stand on the Senate floor and speak at length about being a born again Christian and cite stories from the Bible as message to his colleagues without the left going into fits of apoplexy about the coming American Theocracy?

Listen to the mp3 and you'll know.

1 Dear sir,

I think that after posting this comment, I need to go get my sandwich (and perhaps I'll put extra mayo!)... But that's not because of you :-)
I wanted to say that I just found your blog via the controversy that arose following Captain Ed's entry on the spinelessness of the GOP leadership.

You are definitely not alone. Myself and others have been expressing frustrations with the national leadership of our party for quite some time. I unfortunately do not have any time to look around your blog more, despite it's interesting title... It's past 3:30 AM now, and I still have a ton of overdue course work to get in - but I hope to be back here before too long. Keep up the blogging.
(Off to the fridge...!)

4 I suspected as much. I knew it wasn't gonna be Barbara Boxerrocks.

5 My sentiments exactly. I posted as much, except my language was not as consice or devoid of anger.
