GOP Agenda Sputtering

It's great news by any measure that the Senate failed to repeal the estate tax today, although I'm shocked that it was so tough, seeing as how there are more Republican senators than there were in 2004, or 2002. Same thing with the vile gay marriage amendment; more Republicans in the Senate, but it failed by an even larger margin than it did the in 2004. Don't know what it means, but it's a good sign. One can only hope this ridiculous flag-burning amendment will get shot down as well.
