Voice Votes

For those who didn't pick it up in the articles on the Schiavo bill, the Senate approved the measure on a voice vote.

That means no recorded dissent. That means, no Dems - or trule states' rights oriented Republicans - spoke up. Bummer.

NewDonkey Ed Kilgore, guest blogging at Talking Points Memo address Dem Leader Harry Reid's somewhat confusing statements last week:

As for Frist, I think my colleague Marshall Wittman (a.k.a. The Bull Moose) probably hit it on the head in a quote that he served up to the London Times today: “I suspect that Senator Frist has his eye more on the Iowa caucus than the Hippocratic oath."
