Some Wictory Wednesday


[Media Source*]

(Hat Tip: Right On America)

After returning back to the blogosphere (life can get in the way sometimes) it seems that the world has turned upside down.

Seven Senate Republicans bolted from their leaders last night and dropped their support for the "nuclear option" in exchange for seven Democrats' abandoning filibusters against three of President Bush's judicial nominees...

The seven Republican signers were Sens. Mike DeWine of Ohio, Susan Collins of Maine, Lindsey Graham of South Carolina, Lincoln Chaffee of Rhode Island, John McCain of Arizona, John W. Warner of Virginia and Olympia J. Snowe of Maine.


Unfortunately it seems that Lindsey Graham joined the Judas Republican ranks being seduced by the dark side. And it looks like some of the GOP leaning bloggers are not happy with what has transpired.


Michelle Malkin has a nice picture that reflects today's GOP and this blogger may finally endorse the "Not. One. Dime." campaign led by CQ. Even Hugh Hewitt (the blog historian) even seems pretty upset about this deal.
It is impossible to say whether this is a "terrible" deal, a "bad" deal, or a very, very marginally "ok" deal, but it surely is not a good deal. Not one dime more for the NRSC from me unless and until the Supreme Court nominee gets confirmed, and no other filibusters develop. I won't spend money on a caucus supporting organization when the caucus can't deliver a majority. Mark Kennedy and other Senate candidates with spines, but not for the NRSC.

The current attitude is that this "setback" is really a spit in the eye towards all the GOP Bloggers out there. After all many people (including bloggers) spent time, money and effort to get judges who would not legislate from the bench as if America was an Aristocracy of some sort, but would interpret the law "as it is read" in the constitution. And it seems there are some bloggers who are not happy with what has just transpired.
And on behalf of the entire GOP, I'm having a hard time seeing an upside to this deal right now. At first - and second, and tenth - glance, it looks like you've sold out your party.

No, not just the party; not just the assembly of suits and climbers and hangers-on that no doubt surrounds you at work every day. No, I'm talking about all of us who busted our a**es overcoming a full-court media press (and continue to do so), and gave of our time and money until it hurt - hurt our wallets, our families, our relationships, our equilibrium. We gave them all with enthusiasm because we knew what was at stake; a whole generation of Supreme Court decisions.

So we gave. And you took.

And today, you looked us all in the face, and spat.

Ironically this blogger became a republican because President Bush came into office. This blogger might leave just as quickly when 2008 comes around.
