 TAP: Vol 15, Iss. 2. Bad Max. Matthew Yglesias.   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-28)
By lending this farce a veneer of bipartisan credibility, Baucus and Breaux essentially denied the Democrats what was not only their best chance of defeating the bill in question but the party's last hope of putting a stop to a long string of Republican provocations aimed at reducing the minority party to window-dressing status.
Notably, Baucus' behavior has drawn condemnation not just from liberals but from centrist Democrats outside of government who can normally be found extolling the virtues of such willingness to work across party lines.
Baucus' underhanded television ads insinuating that Taylor is gay played a role in the campaign, but as early as June, Republicans privately admitted that the race was a long shot.

While Baucus did cast a vote that was politically safe this time, he still seems to agree with the proposed amendment’s ideology, if not the mechanism chosen.
Neither the state nor any person, firm, corporation, or institution shall discriminate against any person in the exercise of his civil or political rights on account of race, color, sex, culture, social origin or condition, or political or religious ideas.
So you’ll forgive me for not thanking the Senator for casting a ‘courageous vote’ in what was nothing more than political theater; when it mattered to the people of Montana, Max stood for bigotry and hate.
