Oh, and btw, George, don't let the door hit you in the ass on your way out

well, well, well, whaddaya know... the three republicans magically became four* and were joined by eleven democrats... all fifteen somehow managed to grow a pair, and flipped the middle digit to george even AFTER george managed to get off his ass, drag himself over to capitol hill, and attempt to arm-twist the committee into giving him his way...
A Senate committee, in a bipartisan rebuff to President George W. Bush, approved military tribunal legislation that would give more legal protection to suspected terrorists than the administration wants.

Four of the 13 Republicans on the panel joined the 11 Democrats to pass their version of the measure, rejecting Bush's proposal to bar defendants from seeing classified evidence prosecutors may want to use in court. Former Secretary of State Colin Powell endorsed the Senate approach, warning that the Bush administration is risking the safety of U.S. troops and worldwide opinion by permitting harsh treatment of detainees.

The committee acted just hours after the president made an unusual visit to Capitol Hill to urge support for his proposals on domestic eavesdropping and military tribunals. Meeting with House Republicans, Bush said he reminded them that "the most important job of government is to protect the homeland."

george, you don't know protecting the homeland from a hole in the ground...

[* Graham, McCain, Warner, and I haven't found out either who the fourth was or who the Dems were.]
