Specter, I sincerely hope, has just destroyed his chance for re-election.

Bush will be skewered forever, do to this economic downturn.

Ted Kennedy will forever be praised despite his contributions to it.

Now if Sherrod Brown misses his plane tonight from Ohio we are really gaining ground on not passing this thing!

Oh, then why did he support Obama, our first communist president? Teddy has been striving to stick it to the U.S. this way for his whole life. Porkulus is his life’s work.

Hmmm, one always has to be mindful of realignments in Senatorial power. There may yet be hope.

From what I understand if there are any changes in a bill, and there were in this case, it has to be debated and voted on again. So the will need to get the magic 60 one more time. However I could be wrong, the rules of the Senate are weird and arcane.

-- .once it went to cloture, there was no stopping it. --

And there wasn't. The Senate bill went to conference committee.

But now there is a conference report, a "new" entity. Language that has not heretofore been voted on by the senate. And debate on that hasn't been limited by unanimous consent, as far as I know. If there is one objecting senator, to voting tonight, then that objection must be respected. The only way around it is cloture.

For the Swimmer not to jump at the opportunity to damage the USA by voting in the Senate, must mean that Mary Joe’s murderer must be on death’s doorstep.

Not that the Ass Press would ever tell you the truth.

So true. To read the article it looks like he's in the best of health and rapidly recovering from the glioblastoma, a word the AP has never used to describe his condition.

> Kennedy does not want this as his LEGACY. He sees the writing on the wall!

That’s because his only legacy is his “aquatic” ability to turn a car into a submarine.

I disagree.

Hopefully Mary Jo will get the honor of kicking his butt into hell.

Considering where he is going, I really wonder if this is true! I would like to think not.
