Post results of the vote.
'DU closes its thread'
hmmmm, gee, aren't they supposed to be open minded 'liberals'......LOL!!!
Alert Homelands Security. Make sure all the women have armed escortes leaving the Senate grounds tonight.
This is awesome, just wait until November, when we have even more conservatives in the house and senate!
Exactly. I went to DU to listen to the crying but was unable to access due to high volume.
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 ; )
Kos is down, too.
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?
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
Did you know Kerry was in Switzerland before he was in Vietnam?
Yeah, he got a medal for shooting a Saint Benhard in the back running away from him.
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!
I cant believe people think like that. Amazing.
Ed Henry on CNN says AYES are 69 - 70
Speaking of which, what's the deal with all the 'pink'-logoed stuff at Victoria's Secret anymore?
Lock down every liquor store in the District and Prince George's County.
Left wing kooks. Can't even use capitalism to advance their commie cause. How sweet it is!!!
