Schiavo and '06

Democrats laid down, abdicated their responsibility as an opposition party and allowed the Schiavo bill to pass. All it would have taken was one Senator or a majority of House Democrats to block the bill. But they didn't do it. Barney Frank passionately argued against the bill only to be abandoned by a majority of Democratic House members late last night.

We have one party rule in this country and clearly we no longer have an independent judiciary, or at least not one that is immune to the political will of Congress. What makes this even worse is that polls show 7 in 10 Americans disagreed with the actions of Congress yesterday.

With political acumen like this, Democrats aren't likely to win much of anything in '06.
