This is the absolute proof of the hypocrisy the Republican party exhibits:
Senate Majority Leader Bill Frist signaled yesterday that he and other White House allies will filibuster a bill dealing with the interrogation and prosecution of detainees if they cannot persuade a rival group of Republicans to rewrite key provisions opposed by President Bush.
Remember the “nuclear option” from last year? A filibuster is suppose to be a valuable tool to help protect the minority in Congress, yet the Republicans wanted to strip that. Now the Republican leadership, in their sense of becoming a dictatorship, wants to use the filibuster to help rubber stamp George Bush even more. I thought everything deserved “an up or down vote”? That’s right. Things like that only apply if the other side of the aisle has an objection.
