put down the phone

Thanks to all of you who heeded my call to call Capitol Hill over the last couple of weeks, but this morning will see the Senate vote to approve the Bush torture bill. Democrats negotiated away their right to filibuster the bill in exchange for votes on a handful of amendments—all of which will fail.

I guess the Democratic leadership thought this kind of posturing-as-votes was a great tactic or something. I (along with a couple of big deal papers) think otherwise.
