MAKING A LIST, CHECKING IT TWICE….For the past few weeks Josh Marshall has been industriously collecting names of congress critters who are members of what he calls the “Fainthearted Faction” ? Democrats who are saying nice things about the president’s Social Security privatization plan ? and the “Conscience Caucus” ? Republicans who are bucking the party line and refusing to go along with it. Click the links to see who the current members are.

I’m bringing this up because I figure there are probably at least three or four people out there who read this blog but don’t read Josh, and you might be interested in looking at the lists. Josh keeps them updated with help from his readers, so if you’ve gotten a communique of some kind from one of your congressional representatives that would put them in one camp or another, fire off an email to Josh and let him know.
