Kick The Ball, Charlie Brown!

Well, well. Whaddaya know?

Allegedly "rebel" GOP senators ain't gonna save you:
The Senate Intelligence Committee yesterday rejected Sen. Rockefeller's motion to hold hearings to investigate the President's warrantless eavesdropping program by an 8-7, strict party line vote. Yet again, every Senate Republican followed White House instructions not to investigate the President, and this time did so despite the statements of several of those GOP Senators just within the last 8 weeks that such an investigation was urgent and necessary.
And the new "rebel" Democrats are still struggling... and losing:
If we want to build the kind of Democratic Party we all yearn for, we can't let "Democrats" like Cuellar continue to burn our brand and harm the party. Doing something was better than doing nothing. We're a nascent movement a scant two years old... [And yet] if Cuellar had a Republican opponent in November, I would support Cuellar for the general. The time to fight for the soul of the party is in the primaries. Once the primaries are over, I'm happy to get behind whoever wins.
Sorry, Kos, but when you lose your soul, you got nothing. You wanna sacrifice ethics for power? Then you are no different from the Republicans.

And that's the problem, right there.
