    It does not take a majority to prevail ... but rather an irate, tireless minority, keen on setting brushfires of freedom in the minds of men.

Childish tactics

It bothers me more than slightly that resorting to such tactics as "If you're not going to play our way, we're not playing." is still a legitimate course of action at the upper levels of government. That kind of behavior is acceptable (just barely) on the playground, and even then playground teachers are quick to have a word with would-be fillibusters.
See the full article here.
I particularly like the following paragraphs:
"The event is taking place as Democrats and Republicans alike are escalating their public relations campaigns in anticipation of an imminent confrontation. The Democratic minority has blocked confirmation of 10 of President Bush's judicial nominees by preventing Republicans from gaining the 60 votes needed to close debate, using the filibuster tactic often used by political minorities and most notoriously employed by opponents of civil rights.

Dr. Frist has threatened that the Republican majority might change the rules to require only a majority vote on nominees, and Democrats have vowed to bring Senate business to a standstill if he does."
What does it say for our country when grown men and women can not settle differences without resorting to school-yard politics?
