OPINION
January 2, 2007
SEN. SAM BROWNBACK (R-Kan.), one of Congress' conservative culture warriors, opposes one of President Bush's judicial nominees because she dared to attend a same-sex commitment ceremony in 2002. Whether they want to enable the senator's bigotry is a question for Kansans and, eventually perhaps, the rest of us (Brownback is a possible 2008 presidential candidate). But the Senate can and should take action to prevent a single senator from imposing his prejudices on the entire body.
