I have changed my mind about the compromise over the 'Nuclear Option'

We should hang Frist, also



After a few days of quiet reflection, taking in the decision to compromise and what it will mean I have calmly come to the conclusion that the seven a******* who pushed this compromise should be hung and that Frist should join them. Why Frist? Just to send a message. Leadership sometimes means threatening subordinates who refuse to toe the line. To paraphrase Michael Ledeen, every now and then you have to throw a senator against the wall to make sure the others know we are serious. Frist could have said, "I am going to make it my mission in life that this is your last term as a Senator if you do not vote for this rule change." Now that would have been nuclear. Here is the list of Senators who rather let the Democrats off the hook, the sanctimonius seven or gang of seven:

The senators are Lisa Murkowski of Alaska, Chuck Hagel of Nebraska, John Sununu of New Hampshire, Arlen Specter of Pennsylvania, John Warner of Virginia, Susan Collins of Maine and Mike DeWine of Ohio.
