Poor Harry and Dems. All their midnight votes, late night and early morning sessions, voting on Christmas Eve, relating to healthcare, and it all may be for naught.

What a HOOT!

Suddenly they are worried about doing things LEGALLY?

Back room deals, bribes, bowing to special interests, lying, not paying taxes and seating ole Ted the drunk the NEXT DAY after he won his senate seat back in 1962?

Harry, GET REAL!

Correct ... the socialists have never needed bi-partisan anything ... they’ve had the power all along.

I’d bet Dingy Harry now knows his retirement papers will be signed by the people of NV come November as a result of this election.

I'm sure the Senate in 2011 will grant Harry Reid's successor the same courtesy.

“While Senator-elect Brown’s victory changes the political math in the Senate, we remain committed to strengthening our economy, creating good paying jobs and ensuring all Americans can access affordable health care," Reid said. "It is now more important than before for Republicans to work with us rather than against us if we are to find common ground that improves Americans’ lives.”

And Reid said this with a straight face.

*sigh*

I say he’ll “need to retire” for some reason. He knows he’s going home anyway so why go home bloody?

Of course paperwork can get "lost in the mail". IF the higher ups in the various postal workers unions have anything to say about it, it just might.

Apparently Sen. Webb has said that all action on health bill should be suspended until Brown is seated, according to Drudge. I think that some of the Dems are beginning to understand what has just happened.
