This is heartening. A 90-9 vote in the Senate, in the face of the White House's threat to veto the military appropriations bill if this rider is attached, is a positive sign. It would be nice if the actual conservatives in the GOP were to stand together to oust Bush, Rove, and their neo-con cronies, and return the political debate in this country to some kind of rational ground. Imagine a presidential campaign between an actual fiscal conservative on the one side and a real-life social progressive on the other. Wouldn't that be a thing to behold?
