Being a nearly-lifetime Iowan, I am especially grateful to Iowa’s Senator Charles Grassley for taking a principled and rather courageous position recently:

Two GOPers Join Dems in White House Contempt Vote
Earlier we noted that the Senate Judiciary Committee had voted to approve contempt resolutions against Karl Rove and White House chief of staff Josh Bolten for failing to comply with subpoenas from the U.S. Attorney firings probe.The final vote tally was 12-7, with two Republicans, Sens. Arlen Specter (R-PA) Chuck Grassley (R-IA) crossing over.

It says something about the contempt resolutions themselves, doesn’t it? Apparently, they are more than politics-as-usual; some must genuinely feel there are abuses underway that, for the good of the nation, can’t be ignored.
