It's so damn funny that DU closes it's threads to lurkers when they are losing on an issue. What a bunch of babies...LOL.

The DailyKOS Kidz are on suicide watch now.

Here is a typical post:

"Any Democrat who votes for cloture is no longer a Democrat.

Take down their names and kick their ass in the next election theyre in.

Remember today, January 30, 2006. Today was the last day of the American democracy. It died today.

Welcome to the New World Order."

By the way, the FR Moderator did a kick-ass job of having the vote tallied at the top of the thread in real time. That was professionalism. I don't know of any other website that was doing that. The DailyKos kids didn't have that service.

You can send a money order. I've considered it, then just sent the money to FR instead.

YES!
When Frist voted, that was our first clue.
He couldn't vote until he was sure we had cloture, 'cause of the rules...

There is no display with YES and NO on CSPAN 2. It would be helpful if they showed that. Just wondering did you hear from them, or from other source it was up to 65? I just got home. Sounds like great news though. Incoherent Teddy and his ilk have been defeated. I revel in their humiliation. :)

Levin-NO

I'm shocked. Really. Stabmenow was one of the first to push for the fillibuster so I know that vote.

I'll be voting for Stabmenow's opponent this November.

Since the DUmmies don't have any principles, they are all bluster and will indeed vote for the Democrat in the primaries AND November (short of Satan himself running against some Senator ; )

Mod; ping to #211. Thank you for your efforts. We're still waiting for a few Senators to amble into the chamber, so we don't have the final vote.

Cantwell's "aye" vote still surprises me. Her constituency is the same on that voted for Patty "Osama's a great guy" Murray, why would a little obstruction upset them?

From the Washington Post:

The Senate, overcoming a symbolic filibuster attempt by Massacusetts Democrats Sens. Robert F. Kerry and Edward M. Kennedy, voted to end debate on the nomination of Samuel A. Alito to the U.S. Supreme Court.

They forgot to say what Kerry and Kennedy were symbols of... but we already knew. *g

CSPAN2 that's covering this is so useless.

No tallying at all.

And even though he's won, the title hasn't changed in 30 minutesCan I venture to guess C-SPAN is disappointed

Oh how I wish I was that far sighted. I do post there, and they love me. No joke. There, I am a Dean supporter and want a Dean/Sharpton.Kucinich ticket. And everytime I say it, I'm bumped and kicked and reccommended. And they wonder why they ALWAYS lose. Hee-LAR-EE-Ous. I have yet to donate, I did not know there policy on "commiserating amongst fellow losers" on issues like this. But as one other Freep brother just said to me....a bad check can still carry some great weight.

Fight the good fight!

They will be freaking hard. If Alito gets confirmed, I will revel in their misery. I know, I am such a nice guy.

The word is schadenfreude, and it's a guilty but harmful indulgence. Wallow in it and enjoy.

They really thought they had a chance, too. It looks like cloture will pass with 70+ votes. Ah, good times.
