I hope that you're all as thrilled as I am to find that there is a conscience in the Republican party, after all. Last night, Republican and Democratic Senators reached a compromise that averted the "nuclear option" from being exercised.
Many right-wing Republicans were infuriated by the break-away Republicans who listened to their conscience more than their party leaders. I'm happy to hear such people exist and I wish that they would do so more frequently.
Perhaps the break-away was part of a larger re-election strategy for these individuals. Coincidently, the results of a survey were released, giving Bush, Republicans, and Democrats all very low scores on overall satisfaction. The country views the Republicans as spoiled brats. I have to say, I couldn't be happier to hear it.
Perhaps we're not as blind as I once believed. Thank goodness.
