Is Frist about to face another mutiny?

This time, the issue of stem cells might cause RINO Specter to bypass Frist, who is against the bill. Senator Brownback, a public supporter of Ed Bryant's Senate campaign, is trying to gather enough votes for a procedural "filibuster," but it looks like the conservatives might be hurting for numbers. President Bush has promised a veto, so the overall question might not be if it passes but by how much. Of course, the acute problem may be that McCain's folly might have hurt Frist's political capital, emblazoning such closet Democrats as Specter to push the envelope.

MORE: Peggy Noonan's op-ed in today's Wall Street Journal is just another reflection of the Right's contempt - not just professionally, but personally - at McCain's brood. I take it that Peggy won't be watching this next Monday night.
