Why Republicans Lost

Here it is, in a nutshell. No legislation authorizing warrantless wiretapping was passed, and soon-to-be-gone Senate Majority Leader Bill Frist tells the President it isn't going to happen during the lame duck session.

Everyone knows what that means. That means it isn't going to happen -- because the Democrats sure aren't going to pass such laws. It's difficult to know what the last Congress was actually doing -- it couldn't get around to confirming judges, passing important national security legislation, or extending the President's tax cuts. No wonder voters were sick of them.

Thanks to Republican ineptitude, the official American congressoinal position will soon that the "rights" of suspected terrorists trump the security of normal Americans. Democrats, it seems, are about to reach a whole new plateau when it comes to a disdain for the "right to life."

And unfortunately, it seems the Republicans aren't interested in winning in '08 when all I hear is "Same ol', same ol'".

I'm disgusted with politics as usual. They never learn, they just want to protect their money and K-street connections...

If McCain is the choice in '08, it'll be a disaster.
