I put Middle Earth Journal in hiatus in May of 2008 and moved to Newshoggers.
I temporarily reopened Middle Earth Journal when Newshoggers shut it's doors but I was invited to Participate at The Moderate Voice so Middle Earth Journal is once again in hiatus.

A why the hell do I bother moment!

It's times like this that I ask my self "why the hell do I bother"?
Schumer, Feinstein Announce Support for Mukasey
Sens. Charles E. Schumer (D-N.Y.) and Dianne Feinstein (D-Calif.) announced this afternoon that they will vote in favor of confirming Michael B. Mukasey as attorney general, effectively ending a growing revolt by fellow Democrats that had threatened Mukasey's confirmation.

By announcing their support, the two Democrats virtually guarantee that Mukasey, with support from the nine Republicans, will be narrowly approved by the Senate Judiciary Committee on Tuesday.
OK, I'm not happy but:
This is why I still bother

    I'm with you. There were more than enough reasons long ago for sane and ethical people to throw up their hands and go live in the woods, but the briefest thoughts of Cheney, W, and nearly all of the GOP candidates continue to inspire us to fight. It is tiring though. Sheesh.

  2. I was wondering if you might have a reaction to this. Even the Oregonian is against "torture" and Mukasey. I sure would be disappointed in Schumer and Feinstein.

    As a matter of fact, "Feinstein says she's still troubled by Mukasey's evasive answers..." and it goes without saying that there are many who are troubled by Sen. Clinton's evasive answers, in the latest debate.

    BTW, how will Clinton vote on Mukasey?

    Glad she's in your party!
