Hypocracy Alert

Oh how I hate Sam Brownback...Senator from the state I grew up in. One of the foremost supporters of the nuclear option in the Senate, a pawn of the Christianist right and blossoming member of the American Taliban. But today...the hypocracy is in full evidence. His comments, courtesy this NYT story, on the coming embryonic stem cell debate in the Senate:
And at least one opponent of the measure, Senator Sam Brownback, Republican of Kansas, has indicated that if Dr. Frist puts the bill on the agenda, he may try to block it by filibuster.

"I have conveyed to Senate leadership that we must do everything we can procedurally to stop unethical embryonic stem cell research in the Senate, and I will work to do just that," Mr. Brownback said in a statement released Tuesday night. "We simply should not go down the road of using taxpayer dollars to kill young humans."

Compare that to Brownback on the judicial filibuster (courtesy a story):
Brownback pointed out that "we've been hung up now four years" on several of the nominees.

"There's no sign of it ending," Brownback said. "We're kind of at the end of the string. I don't know what else we can do" other than change the rules.

All together now: HYPOCRITE!!!
