Republicans gain Yucca votes
Bush has ensured that Nevada's electoral votes in 2004 will go to the Demcrats. Completing his utter betrayal of Nevadans, Bush convinced Utah's two senators to back the Yucca Mountain nuclear waste plan. He did so by promising to prevent any nuclear waste from being stored in their state.
Of course, Bush promised Nevadans that he would base any Yuca decision on sound science, and then promptly and summarily approved the plan without bothering to deal with nitpicky things such as, well, sound science.
The vote will probably happen tomorrow, and neither side is claiming victory or defeat.
