The Senate GOP Needs Testicular Fortitude
What do the Senate GOP and Osama Bin Laden have in common? They both cave.

The Senate Republicans have a long time pattern: when they are close to victory, they stop advancing.
It has happened again and again. It is not even the fault of the GOP leader. It is a problem that goes through the core of the Senate GOP and has for years.
At a moment when the American public is massively shifting to the position of "Drill Here. Drill Now." the Senate Republicans have ditched a plan to push forward on ANWR.
The Senate GOP should fight on this issue. They can win it. And they should.
But they will not because when Democrats come at them with a punch, the Senate GOP slaps back and then folds. Again and again and again and again.
Perhaps we should add these to the Senate GOP diet. They need a supplement.
