Whatever happened to lead, follow, or get the hell out of the way?

First Harry Reid was going to present a version of the telecom spying legislation that gave complete immunity to the phone companies. After a hugh uproar and thousands of calls, letters, and emails to his office he agreed to present TWO versions of the bill, one granting retroactive immunity and one that does not.

He is presenting both bills despite holds placed on the immunity version by members of the Democratic Party. How many times have we all seen a single Republican place a hold on legislation that stops any further proceedings, and just how chickesh*t is it that our Democratic "leader" would ignore holds placed by members of his own party and allow votes on both bills?

Anyone wanna bet the farm on which version will win? Just don't discuss anything about it on a telephone or cell phone if you want to try and keep your secrets or opinions private.
