Beep, Beep, Beep....

That's the ubiquitous noise made by a variety of vehicles backing up. It's also apparently the noise Lynn Cheney made on Sunday. (See Linked Story). I think this is a case of a mother speaking from the heart and I commend her for it.

Lynne, Dick Cheney Differ on Gay Marriage

So, what's the debate in the Senate all about now?

If the votes for FMA aren't there, drop it and move onto more important issues like the deficit, social security and terrorism. I know the strategy is to get Dems. and moderate Republicans on record against FMA to use against them in the election, and to motivate social conservatives, but now those who are accused of opposing FMA can point to both Dick Cheney and Lynn Cheney's position. Puts the administration in a corner if you ask me and of course it may now appear that Bush & Co. aren't standing firm, which will alienate, not motivate social conservatives. As I've said before, FMA will back fire for the Republicans.

Thanks Lynne!
