Wait a second…

On the possibility that some Democrat might be a chickenshit and join the filibuster:

“People have lost seats on procedural votes,” said Tad Devine, a long-time Democratic strategist. “That is what happened in the 1994 election, when President Clinton’s economic package went into law and a number of Democrats in the House lost their seats… But if you are talking about one or two people who are well established, they can oppose legislation on the merits but allow it to come to a vote and I don’t think that’s enough to cost them a seat.”

News flash: No Democrat could lose an election over providing health care. I’m glad it looks good to clear a filibuster, but any Democrat scared of losing his seat over a yes vote on the public option is a goddamned pansy.

Still, 51′ll do, pig.

If Ahmadinejad makes a speech and no one is there to hear it did it really happen?

I am so so glad this little man can now give a speech without the right wing fringers pissing their pants in fear all over the networks. I mean, they still do quiver and quake but a least we don’t have to endure the humiliation of our president doing the same.
