Resistance is futile

[Media Source*]

(Reuters) Why the democrats continue to resist often puzzles me. Although they can not defeat the nomination of Gonzales, they are digging their own graves, especially by their portrayal as the "good ol' boy white club." Don't believe me? Look at the cabinant members who they are resisting! First is was Condi, now it is Gonzales. It seems that up to two thirds of the 44 Democrats are going to resist his nomination. Can you say political death amongst the Hispanic population?

Reuters has more:
A vote is expected by Thursday. Senate Minority Leader Harry Reid, a Nevada Democrat, predicted that up to 30 of the 44 Senate Democrats would oppose Gonzales, who rose from poverty to sit on the Texas Supreme Court before serving Bush at the White House.

"There are extremely strong feelings with the Democrats over the Gonzales nomination," Reid told reporters. "He has a story that is an American success story. But that doesn't make up for the problems we have with his being the person who was the legal adviser to the president that signed off on these torture memos," Reid said.

Torture? You must be referring to Guantanamo Bay. Sorry, I didn't realize that international "insurgents" (aka terrorists) were under the Geneva convention? Since when are terrorists who not only plot but carry out attacks against the U.S., Israel and Coalition allies allowed to have protection underneath international law? They are not wearing uniforms, killing civilians and promoting instability wherever their carcass can be found throughout the world. I give Gonzales props for allowing the "torture" (if you will call it that) and to the Democrats who are resisting his nomination, realize that resistance is futile! Selah!
