george will's column on the miers nomination.

wow: He has neither the inclination nor the ability to make sophisticated judgments about competing approaches to construing the Constitution. Few presidents acquire such abilities in the course of their pre-presidential careers, and this president particularly is not disposed to such reflections.

sweet.

the US senate just made me feel a little bit better about the US government: they agreed to regulate the detention, interrogation and treatment of prisoners held by the US military in an amendment to a military spending bill. the white house has threatened to veto the bill if the amendment were attached.

however, the senate showed some guts, a lot of republicans showed some common decency, and the measure passed 90 to 9, with 46 republicans joining 43 democrats and one independent in favor.

about time that they show this arrogant SOB in the white house that he can't get away with doing everything his damn unethical, corrupt way. man, i am hoping we'll see more and more of this. the honeymoon might finally be over.
