Tester and Baucus Do The Right Thing

I’m very pleased to see that Senators Baucus and Tester will vote against the confirmation of Judge Michael Mukasey as the next Attorney General. his refusal to directly answer a question with an obvious answer: that water boarding is torture and the United States should not do it, makes him unqualified to serve as the nation’s top law enforcement official.

Of course, now come the real test. Will the Democrats (other than Schmuer and Feinstein, of course) have the courage to stand up against the Republicans and block this nomination?

If you appreciate an independent voice holding Montana politicians accountable and informing voters, and you can throw a few dollars a month our way, we would certainly appreciate it.
