If Bush likes a "compromise," you know it's not a compromise

I'll let Glenn Greenwald explain why anyone telling you the torture "compromise" is a good thing is a fan of torture.

I'll also echo Glenn's frustration that "Democrats" are so eager to lavish praise on the nominally "independent" Republicans that rolled over on this issue. It's bad enough that the Democrats defer to Republicans to provide meaningful opposition to the White House -- the fact that they don't even notice when the Republican opposition caves is completely pathetic.

From here on out, I think we can refer to the Democrats as the "Democratic wing of the Republican Party."
