More Calvinball in the Senate March 5, 2006

Posted by ultor in politics.
trackback

In most Senate committees, the majority party pretty much holds all the cards. The Intelligence Committee is different, by design. It’s the only committee where the Vice-Chair as well as the Chair has subpoena power, where there are equal numbers of members from the majority and minority parties, and where all staff meetings have to be open to both parties.

Sen. Bill Frist is so annoyed at the notion that this bipartisan design might actually be working that he’s threatening to change it to work like all the other committees if any Republicans vote along with the Democrats on the committee to investigate the NSA wiretapping.

You know, it’s really too bad that 98% of Republicans insist on givinig the rest a bad name.
