THIS is the "world's greatest deliberative body"?
From today's Washington Post comes this little gem about a floor fight on whether or not to strip Karl Rove, Harry Reid and Dick Durban of their respective security clearances. The Republicans who proposed that Senators Reid and Durban be stripped of their security clearances (Reid for revealing on the Senate floor the contents of a classified CIA document on a Bush nominee and Durban for his abject stupidity in comparing US troops to Nazi's and Stalinists) have a certain point, the fact that this was even debated on the floor is a travesty! Don't our Senators have anything better to do, like passing a budget or voting on Presidential appointees? Don't the American people deserve a break from the partisan insanity? Come on people. You are supposed to be adults. Why don't you act the part?
