  •  I'm not just talking about the alito confirmation. (none)
    I'm talking about in general.  Why aren't we making more noise about investigating the wiretaps?  Why aren't we commanding the debate on finance reform?  We're in a great position to call the republicans on their half hearted measures, why aren't we?

    I can't wait til they start making us wear armbands.

    •  There's been an awful lot of noise (none)
      There is going to be an investigation into wiretapping, and Democratic noise on it delayed passage of the Patriot Act.

      The quest for finance reform HAS been led by Democrats, but frankly, considering people were breaking existing law as is, tightening the law is not a proper solution to Abramoff. It's a good idea and overdue, but not exactly what the issue involved is.

      This is what I'm talking about. When you are a minority, the best you can get is background noise sometimes. And what constitutes success has to be viewed through a different lens. Otherwise, you're looking through a Republican lens set to see only failures where there are successes.
