Henry Clay Will You Please Go Now!

All right now, let's take this slowly, all you "all the way on one side or the other or else you're terrible" folks. The whole point of a compromise is that no one side gets everything they want. Everypone gives a little and takes a little (and your hearts break a little) and at the end of the day we are a stronger nation for it,

I'm far more concerned about the Surpreme Court than about judges in Texas. Texas gave us GWB and "No Child Left Behind" c/o the so-called Houston miracle, after all. Leave the fillibuster in place, for pete's sake and get back to something important.

Eight soldiers have died in the last 24 hours in Iraq, for example. This seems to me - oh, never mind.

Lemming the unwilling cynic...

Yes, we are a nation built on compromise, but you wouldn't know that the last 20+ years or so.

The theme of your post resonates with me. There is always something in the news to distract us from the issues: filibusters, Runaway Brides, Terry Schiavo, etc. There is only one constant--people are dying in Iraq. Maybe no one cares because it isn't "news" anymore.
