More On Senate "Collegiality": Concessions to Democrat Lawyers

The chairman of the Senate Judiciary Committee, Senator Arlen Spector, must be feeling collegial, again. He is urging Republicans to delay Sandra Day O'Connor's replacement on the Supreme Court. Moreover, Sen. Spector advises he talked to retiring associate justice about staying on the high court, through June. Spector, a member of the true senate majority - the lawyers - adds his name to the group of senators who play games with loyalty to the Republican party. As an independent voter, I find that political collegiality allows colonizers of the Senate (lawyers) to usurp the majority agenda from Republicans. Meaningful reforms do not get done, therefore.

definition: collegial - characterized by having authority (the chairman's) vested equally among colleagues (lawyers). (obvious interpretaions by Vigilis)
