Whatever happened to "up or down" votes?

Washington: A long-awaited Senate showdown on the war in Iraq was shut down before it even started yesterday, when nearly all Republicans voted to stop the Senate from considering a resolution opposing President Bush's plan to send 21,500 additional combat troops into battle.
So much for that good for the goose is good for the gander nonsense.

Excuses, Excuses….

I know, I haven't written much lately. The Bears, work, the car's been in the shop forever, it's too damned cold, etc. And tomorrow, I'm off to the nation's capital for a conference and to see my kid, who is spending the semester there. I may have some random thoughts before the very early departure tomorrow, but I leave you in good hands, and will see you all Monday.
