G.O.P. Senators Block Debate on Iraq Policy
Republicans on Monday blocked Senate debate on a bipartisan resolution opposing President Bush’s troop buildup in Iraq, leaving in doubt whether the Senate would render a judgment on what lawmakers of both parties described as the paramount issue of the day.

If the parties were reversed, I wonder if we would be hearing talk of "the nuclear option" in the Senate. The "tyranny by the minority," and all those other Luntz-isms.

Anyhoo, this is yet another example of how the GOP goes about representin' its people. Better to cover our ears and clap a hand over our mouths than even entertain the possibility of a different way of handling our occupation of Iraq. Status quo, here we come.

Another punt by our elected officials.
