What Republicans Should Do

One of the benefits of being a conservative in politics is that more often than not, it is beneficial when government does less. Therefore, despite the U.S. Senate being in the minority, we hope that it will use its power of obstruction to get the things that conservatives really want.

For example, the minimum wage. As Pencil discussed in a prior post, the minimum wage, at $7.00 per hour is pretty meaningless. Therefore, at the very least, the Republicans in the Senate should get some of the previously filibustered judges through as a compromise for not filibustering the minimum wage. After all, Bush won re-election in 2004 with a mandate that the people wanted his judges... just as the democrats won in 2006 with a mandate to.... well at the very least to raise the minimum wage.

The heck with that! I want the current Senate to confirm as many judges (and Ambassador Bolton) as they can find /before/they become the minority. I don't care if they work through Christmas!
