The thing to remember about yesterday’s Senate Democrat coup is that the Republicans were routed. Senator Frist can fume and fulminate all he wants, but the gang of Reid, Durbin, and Schumer got what they wanted. It was Republicans who caved. “Republicans Bristle but Agree to Speed Probe Of Prewar Intelligence,” the Washington Post subhead reads. Last night on the excellent John Batchelor radio program, Lawrence Kudlow lit into Frist. So much for conservative solidarity. To add insult to injury, the Post’s Senate sketch writer Dana Milbank captures Frist saying, “I’ve got to go figure out what we need to do.” The embarrassment and humiliation may all be short term. Just how short we’ll find out today at 12:06 p.m., when Rush comes on.
