This just in: Democrats still spineless

So Congress is about to pass President Bush's detainee bill, which prevents "enemy combatants" from being tried in a genuine court of law. Democrats have enough votes to filibuster, but they've decided against it, clearly because they don't want to be seen as soft on terrorism.

Pathetic. A sad day when a President with 40% approval can still ram his bullshit political agenda down the throats of Congress. Can we just blow up the Democratic Party and start over?

(On a less tragic note, check out "tinyurl," a free service that lets you shrink long url's into short, easy-to-read format, like I just did with the NY Times url above. In 1999, this company would be worth 17 billion.)
