I heard what appeared to be a tearful Lincoln Chaffee today saying he's pro-choice, pro-this, pro-that and he can't vote for Alito. I just thought it was funny that it made him cry.

Is this the official live watch-the-vote thread, or should we organize maybe 6 or 7 more?

I'll bet he'd cry real hard if a daughter of his had a pro-choice moment with one of his grandkids.

Good - Bush can congratulate him as the newest member of SCOTUS during his State of the Union talk. Any bets on the Dims really blistering their lips with bile in their rebuttals (or even the usual prebuttals)?

a vote to vote.

What's the daily cost to run the Senate?

You think these fluckers could put in another hour to just end this bull and confirm this obviously qualified judge.

RINOs are weepy lately. Doubtless the effect of a testosterone deficiency. Who was the Republican goofball who burst into tears over Paul Volker's ambassadorship to the UN? I forget.

Apparently the tag team of Swimmer and Hitlery got to Osama Obama; after all his posturing, he's supporting the filibuster.

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.

"Is this the actual vote or a vote to have a vote?"

It's a vote, to see if a committee can vote, to have a vote, so they can think about voting, sometime, somewhere...

I had a cut with clotures in it, too. Docter said to leave them in for a week and I took them out myself.
