Open Thread


by Mary

As Steve mentioned, the Democrats are starting to get wobbly in the face of the intransigence of the right wing fundamentalists. Liberal Oasis asks the right question:

We are standing with Democrats to save the filibuster so it can be used on behalf of the public interest.

If you’re not going to use it here, to block the craziest of the crazy, what’s the point in having it?

And as LO says, there will be lots of calls tomorrow after the Frist appearance on the Taliban network. We need to make sure to let the targeted Senators know they have someone at their back when they get those calls from the fundies. You can help by contacting them and telling them that you are opposed to the abuse of power that Frist is advocating.

What other outrages are you watching?
