I was in Chicago all day on business and came home to learn that Frist has lost control of the Senate. Sure, there were other examples (the Democratic Senate shutdown, the budget bill, etc) but today's vote -- in my mind anyway -- seems to confirm that the previous events were not just the result of a rough couple weeks. Frist no longer controls the Senate. This is not to say the the Ds control the Senate -- they clearly do not -- but the days of GOP Über-control are over.
