Democrats who are committed to killing the bill if Pelosi does not
give them a straight up-or-down vote on an amendment that would
prohibit federal dollars from paying for any part of any health
insurance plan that covers abortions.

The Death of Deliberative Democracy
By Michelle Malkin
In 2006, the minority party in Congress issued a dire report on the
"unprecedented erosion of the democratic process." Democratic Rep.
Louise Slaughter, then the ranking member of the House Rules
Committee, authored the scathing document. She blasted the majority
Republicans' violations of "procedural fairness," short-circuiting of
debate, and late-night meetings "to discourage members and the press
from participating" in legislative deliberations. Fast-forward to
2009. The Imperial Congress has returned. The oppressed have become
the oppressors. Democrats have met the enemy of deliberative
democracy, and it is they.
For Whom the Bell Tolls
By Patrick J. Buchanan
For the Blue Dogs, Tuesday's election was a fire bell in the night. If
Americans think the country is still on the wrong course, as most now
do, and the economy is still dismal, as most now do, the only way to
protest will be to vote against the party that controls Congress and
the White House.

Major Nidal Hasan, M.D., is alive and in custody. We'll find out much
more about Major Hasan over the next days and weeks. I wonder, though,
where the Army psychiatrists and nurses, the Combat Stress heroes, go
when they need counseling after one of their own kills.
