Senate Watching From A Distance

It is interesting to view U.S. politics from a few thousand miles away. You get to see the events without hearing any of the talking heads go on and on about it. (The bliss!)

But things can still be disappointing. Here the Senate had this one opportunity to be exciting for a change and they blow it. I know the average blogger won't believe it, but 90% of Americans don't care about the judicial nominees or the "nuclear option", etc....but what IS interesting is seeing if Frist has any cahones, or seeing if either Democrats or Republicans could possibly live up to their sound bites. Sadly, for folks like me that like to watch a good political tussle, we won't find out this time. Damn it all to hell!

I guess you can just chalk me up to being one of those people that doesn't feel like it would be the end of the world if the Senate were to do something for a change.
