SHAMEFUL

Just Shameful

TheHouse approved an administration-backed system of questioning and prosecuting terrorism suspects today, setting clearer limits on CIA interrogation techniques but denying access to courts for detainees seeking to challenge their imprisonment at Guantanamo Bay, Cuba, and elsewhere.

The 253-168 vote was a victory for President Bush, who yielded some ground during weeks of negotiations but fully embraced the language that House members approved with support from 34 Democrats and all but seven Republicans. Senators also began debating the measure today and defeated the first of five amendments opposed by the administration. Senators predicted their chamber will approve the legislation Thursday.

    34 Democrats. I hope every single one of them gets knocked off in the 2008 primaries.

    Were the seven Republicans out sick?

    Perhaps they started showing signs of conscience and were immediately rushed to the nervous hospital.

    Is there a handy list of the 34 Democrats who hate the Constitution? Are Stephanie Herseth and Melissa Bean on that list?
