Common Denominator

There’s a nice common denominator to a couple of smaller news stories that ran today.
In both this Reuters story about a bill that calls for stricter guidelines on the Pentagon’s treatment of detainees (including an investigation into past treatment of detainees at Guantanamo and Abu Ghraib), and this NYT story about the stem cell research billit seems Republicans are getting fed up with Bush and lashing out. I guess this is the way it goes down when things start falling apart at the top.
