I know there are 14 women in the US Senate, but still feel comfortable saying that this august body has been showing some balls lately... This is another failure (for now) of the Bush regime to get what it wants through sneakiness and intimidation.
Canada has been opposed to drilling in the Alaskan wildlife refuge (which borders Canada and sustains a common eco-system).
Provisions against torture, no drilling in sensitive and precious environment, no spying on your own people illegally - go Senate go! (But don't think this will protect you in the mid-term elections next year, when many of you should be sent packing for your record on security and war.)
(Gary, do help yourself to the photo.)
Diane led the Alaska drilling battle.
Let's hear it for California please.
We have two Republican women from Maine who march to their own drummer as well. It seems as if many of the women have a better idea of why they're there than the men. I knot that's generalizing but I've been watching the Senate (and House) for a while.
Maybe some of the blizzard of letters I've written paid off.
But, yeah, GO SENATE!
