Part of being a good Republican is being critical of your own party when they do something stupid.
Case in point:
The Senate’s Republican leader Bill Frist wants to ban the filibuster on judicial nominees.
I’ll be honest, I think it’s ridiculous that the Dems won’t let Bush put into place who he wants to. We kind of won the election, so we kind of get to choose. Quit crying about it is what I want to tell them. But getting rid of the filibuster?
“Whenever any form of government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the right of the people to alter or abolish it, and to institute a new government…Prudence, indeed, will dictate that governments long established should not be changed for light and transient reasons.” -The Declaration of Independence
I think “because the Democrats are being mean” falls under the category of “light and transient reasons” for changing our government. So shame on both sides of the aisle. Politics as usual I suppose…
