We promote fair and honest political discussion from all sides of the ideological spectrum While my own opinions and my contributors tend toward a more progressive view, that's not always the case. I ask people to comment freely and openly to promote fair discourse.

Bill Frist was stirring the holiday stew when he appeared on Fox News on Sunday morning. He said he felt like an agreement could be reached with the administration over McCain's anti-torture legislation. I think the only way McCain will agree is if the legislation goes through as it stands. Anything less, like exemptions for the CIA would be detrimental to our image and give license to others to do what they like to our detainees. It seems like our nation consistantly wishes to give up any possible moral high ground they might have had.
The other issue and one that is just as volatile is the hearings/vote on Alito, Bush's nominee to replace Sandra Day O'Connor on the SCOTUS. The problem is Alito is the classic rightwing nut job. Frist continued to threaten to jerk the fillibuster out from under the Democrats and change the rules of the Senate in order to get Bush's nominee through. Once again, the Republicans show if they can't win, they just change the rules.
