Are you thinking of Voinovich in regards to Bolton at the UN?

Yes, I was disappointed too. Just like election night, the Dummies have closed their doors so they can cry in private.

Now I have to do my merry shadenfreude dance without the music of their wailing.

Is Kerry back from his ski trip yet?

Damn they locked down DU. The DUmmies were still chanting "I believe" this afternoon, desperate to believe the nomination could be filibustered. So now we can't view the melt down in the reality based community.

BTW doesn't the Kerry filibuster remind you of Otter's speech in Animal House:

"... in this case, I think we have to go all out. I think that this situation absolutely requires a really futile and stupid gesture, be done on somebody's part."

And the D's are just the guys to do it!

Eh. Lil' Lincoln's vote isn't needed to confirm Alito, and he knows it. He'll vote to invoke cloture; that's what's important.

So he'll vote for Alito before he votes againt him.

Who was the Republican goofball who burst into tears over Paul Volker's ambassadorship to the UN? I forget.

I think that was Voinovich over Bolton's nomination to UN Ambassador.

He's already down as an aye on cloture, so step 1 of his 2-step Ketchup Plan is complete.

There have been lots of Democrats voting for cloture. I have no count but I wouldn't be surprised if they've gotten over 60 for cloture already.

Oh what I would GIVE to be reading DU right now!

Voinavich. IK think he was crying over Bolton not Volker. Had he cried over Volker and his whitewash report of the oil for food scandal I might have had some respect for him.

It was predicted over the weekend that DU would be closed to the public eye during the Alito conformation. They don't FR to have a glimpse of them during their meltdown.
