Once again, Senator Republicans like Frist are grabbing their ass with both hands and jumping around to the Democratic whip, and evidently poll numbers.

Freakings Pansies.

"WASHINGTON, Nov. 14 - In a sign of increasing unease among Congressional Republicans over the war in Iraq, the Senate is to consider on Tuesday a Republican proposal that calls for Iraqi forces to take the lead next year in securing the nation and for the Bush administration to lay out its strategy for ending the war.

The Senate is also scheduled to vote Tuesday on a compromise, announced Monday night, that would allow terror detainees some access to federal courts. The Senate had voted last week to prohibit those being held from challenging their detentions in federal court, despite a Supreme Court ruling to the contrary.

Senator Lindsey Graham, the South Carolina Republican who is the author of the initial plan, said Monday that he had negotiated a compromise that would allow detainees at Guantánamo Bay, Cuba, to challenge their designation as enemy combatants in federal courts and also allow automatic appeals of any convictions handed down by the military where detainees receive prison terms of 10 years or more or a death sentence.

The proposal on the Iraq war, from Senator Bill Frist, the majority leader, and Senator John W. Warner, Republican of Virginia, chairman of the Armed Services Committee, would require the administration to provide extensive new quarterly reports to Congress on subjects like progress in bringing in other countries to help stabilize Iraq. The other appeals related to Iraq are nonbinding and express the position of the Senate.

The plan stops short of a competing Democratic proposal that moves toward establishing dates for a phased withdrawal of troops from Iraq. But it is built upon the Democratic approach and makes it clear that senators of both parties are increasingly eager for Iraqis to take control of their country in coming months and open the door to removing American troops."

AJ Strata has a head start on this and the blog reaction so far.

My take, Hugh Hewitt took my thunder here.

So get with it and let Frist and the rest know who butters the bread. Time to let your voice be known.

Speaking of the Devil. Sentator Frist is toast. He might as well go back to doctoring now, his political career is over.

Presidential aspirations in 2008? Not a chance bud. No on my watch.

No backbone, gonads, balls, however you want to put it - you and the rest of the Republican imposters (Soros cronies) are finished.
