Republican "Democracy" in Action

Bill Frist won't allow Senators to speak on the Senate floor about Alito...
Sen. Patrick Leahy (D-Vt.) tried to secure time this week to speak on the Senate floor about Supreme Court nominee Judge Samuel Alito. But Senate Majority Leader Bill Frist would not allow any time for speeches until January 25, a day after the Senate Judiciary Committee votes on Alito's nomination.

Having gotten control of the levers of power, Republicans have been guilty of many things, but noblesse oblige and magnanimity aren't among them.

Bill obviously wasn't so concerned about what Terri would do this time around...
