I keep forgetting to add you to my "mental" ping list..thanks for having me on yours.

Were you on the thread last night that was about how Lindsey and McCain have both said that NO WAY are they going to back down.

Bush seemed like he was trying to tell them today..that he will give them one more chance to work WITH him, and not against him.

We just have to pray that the vote against Bush isn't veto proof.

We need a new law that states "No current member of congress shall run for the office of President of the United States". This would reduce the posturing by presidential hopefuls and their mostly inappropriate legislation influence.

In a letter Friday to Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice, Graham asked Rice, who this week defended the president's plan as legally sound, whether she would be comfortable with Iran imposing a similar restriction if trying a CIA paramilitary operative.

What a grandstanding fool.

This is sickening - that a US Senator would 1.) draw a comparison between a CIA undercover operative and a terrorist pig, and 2.) think that Iran would afford any kind of a fair trial should said operative actually be caught in an act of sabotage or other violence.

Enjoy the luxury of these asinine debates over legal niceties now, folks; the day is coming when western civilization will be backed into a corner and such discussion will be completely moot. Until we prosecute this war against radical Islam with our full fury and might the insanity and carnage will drag on indefinitely.

You should hear her talk these days...she says Ya-know 3 times in every sentence. I think she's breaking and will be discovered for what she is. We should run clips of her sayin yah-know over and over. Its not something an intelligent Senator should say.

Yes, because it would be a major advance over the hostage taking, beheading and murder that generally takes place there.

There's going to be a fight on the floor of the Senate.

If the republicans give these terrorists civil rights .. then they are toast

If that happens .. then have to do everything we can to save the House from Dems hands

Warner as well as Sens. John McCain, R-Ariz., and Lindsey Graham, R-S.C are all covert left-wing fascist anti-Americans who have shown their true colors and are now supporting the terrorist. One solution would be to let the terrorist go and put them in their states with border guards that would not let them out of that state.

Mo, did you just hear on Fox that Durbin & Kennedy want to investigate the letter David Gregory talked about yesterday? The one where he said that someone tried to force some Jags in signing a letter at a meeting?

If I was those senators running for office .. I'd be pretty ticked off at them

Gregory asked Tony about it yesterday. Tony said he did not know of any meeting. Now Kennedy & Durbin want to questions these Jags to see if the WH is "strong arming" the Jags.

" This is sickening - that a US Senator would 1.) draw a comparison between a CIA undercover operative and a terrorist pig, and
2.) think that Iran would afford any kind of a fair trial should said operative actually be caught in an act of sabotage or other violence."

Yesterday Graham said this:
" " ..... There's plenty of examples in Somalia and other places where the Geneva Conventions have inured to our benefit. "

Like Mogadishu I guess.

Graham continues to make such bizarre and incomprehensible statements that I question his IQ and his sanity.

This will lead to only 1 true solution: When out in the field and you are faced with a terrorist you "SHOOT TO KILL"...a dead terrorist tells no tales and if there are witnesses around, shoot them too. I'm so disgusted that Arizonians (NOT me) voted this loser back into the senate in 2004; MCCain needs to be retired and soon!

everyone should do likewise.

Sen. Warner is a moron is he doesn't back down on this. The next terrorist attack in the U.S. will be on his head if he restricts our ability to interrogate terrorists.
