You will go down.
They only need 51 votes. These clowns are running scared. I bet he got approval to make this statement from Harry Reid.

I thought the republicans were challenging it?
The Democrats certainly have a lot of fertilizer. Too bad they can’t grow a conscience.
Why would he vote to repeal his corn-husker kickback? He got precisely what he wanted.
That’s what I was thinking. His “No” vote is actually a “Yes” vote to the special deal he now deplores.

Too late Nelson. You’re from my state and your lame ass is outta there in 2012. Bye bye Benny boy.
WHAT AN ASSHOL3!!!!
You can’t serve two masters, Ben. You chose poorly.
Wow, another DEMONcRAT profile-in-courage. NOT!!
This turd doesn’t deserve a a post here.
Of course he did, and he’s not up till 2012... hoping to put some distance there...
Depose them all. Satan will know his own.
