So, Which Was It, Gentlemen?

Always to be counted on, Thom Hartmann's brought an interesting historical perspective to the recent cave-in to the Bush Admninistration by Senators John McCain, John Warner and Lindsey Graham in their abandonment of a defense of habeas corpus.

...and ultimately finds himself wondering if they were threatened with something or simply have been submerged in the political mire for so long that they lack integrity.

Either way, Thomas Jefferson would be ashamed or at least appalled.

Well... those of us who dwell in Rigorous Intuition lala land have a pretty good idea what and how the powers behind the powers keep their thumbs on the public officials. And it's pretty hideous. But I won't put that kind of tin foil stink on your blog while you're still trying to find an audience.

I should have something more meaningful to say here, but I'm tired and have a headache, so I'll just move on.

I lament that John McCain, once upon a time, actually had my respect. That vanished right around the time he endorsed Dubya, and it's mostly gone downhill from there. He's had teasers of integrity on issues such as this one, but ultimately he flushes it all over again.
