Besides all the other oddities, such as
1. Republicans rebelling against Dubya’s budget proposals for more tax cuts for wealthy, cuts in social services (gotta bleed those programs, due to high deficits),
2. Still no proposed solution to the middle-classification of the Alternative Minimum Tax (c’mon Congress, it’s not any harder to fix than it is to fill out as a taxpayer)
3. Republicans actually concerned about the continuing cost of war in Iraq
4. Republican senators VERY concerned over the Bush Administration’s illegal spying.
— actually, not so odd, considering it’s an election year
