More Cracks In The Facade?
Some more cracks in the worldwide neocon invincibility facade:
* The Feingold-Craig bipartisan filibuster of the
They Hate Us Because Of Our Freedoms, So Let's Go Totalitarian Patriot Act has survived the first attempt to kill it -- and by a decent margin.
* It looks like Ted Stevens' (R-Bridge to Nowhere) attempt to load up a defense spending bill with all sorts of junk, including the attempt to open up ANWR to drilling, will get filibustered as well -- and a number of Republicans are also joining in on this one.
* Neocon LINO (Labour In Name Only) Bush Buddy Tony Blair has just had his Screw The Teachers And Students Because I Can Education Reform Bill shot down by a coalition of Labour and Socialist backbenchers, which will force him to go with hat in hand to his Conservative buddies for the votes needed to ram this thing through. If he doesn't get the votes, he could be done as Prime Minister as he's already had a major defeat on his efforts to ram through a British version of the They Hate Us Because Of Our Freedoms, So Let's Go Totalitarian Patriot Act.
