That they would force this poor old man to do this.....now the slimey Dems are going to tell us how sorry they are, blah blah blah. They are not fit to shine Strom's shoes. Chairman Leaky Leahy is a cad and a bounder.

Reid says that request includes decisions on 17 others and
THAT AIN'T HAPPENIN" says Reai

Reid is one of the nastiest pieces of work in the Senate. I cringe every time he gets up to talk, smug bigot. Why don't he and Leahy just get it over with and punch out poor Strom?

Harry Reid, the slimy bastard. Both Hollings and Thurmond support this nominee. It's just one more deceitful, hateful action by the left to poison the well and trash the tradition and heritage of the Senate.

The Senate is broken. Absolutely broken, and it is entirely due to the unscrupulous and poisonous antics of Tom Daschle.

Harry Reid now tries to run interference for Leahy by citing the usual suspects' 'concerns' about Judge Shedd. Trying to use minority groups' protests. Disgusting re-playing of the race card.

They don't get it...it's about Leahy LYING to Strom Thurmond. This will get ugly fast. Orrin Hatch is speaking now and he is Pi**ed Off!

Is the coward Leaky Leahy even man enough to be present in the Senate Chamber right now or is that why Reid jumped up to defend Leahy???

Don't count your Hatches before they chicken. He'll probably end up apologizing for his outburst.

How long has Byrdman had the shakes and the drools. I'm guessing the first 4 rows of the Senate chambers clear out when he steps up to the podium.

Can't tell if Leahy is there or not but Orrin Hatch is going at it hot and heavy. Wow. I've been waiting for this kind of outrage from the Pubs for years. Hatch is SHOUTING and his face is red Wants a "stinking, solitary vote!"

Between this nonsense and the election tampering, I wonder how long it will be before a civil war erupts?

Orin Hatch is telling it like it is. The RATS have gone against their own rules. We're asking for "Just a stinkin solitary vote" says Orin Hatch

Not on this one. This is serious, it's about the way they do business in committee, and any of them who are thinking more than one step ahead realize that if they can do it to Strom, they can do it to them the next time, or three or four times down the road -- and regardless of party affiliation.

With all due respect to Strom there should be age limits on Senators, watching Byrd now proves that point.

Hatch was great. Now we are being treated to a further narcoplectic address by Byrd on cloture on the Iraq amendment. We'll see if the Pubs let this issue drop.

Robert Byrd now is now talking and asking to delay vote on Iraq Resolution scheduled tomorrow morning.

Is not even addressing Senator Thurmond's issue. THEY DO NOT EVEN CARE ABOUT THE RULES, THE COUNTRY, THE INTEGRITY OF OUR US SENATE WHICH BELONGS TO THE REPUBLIC, NOT THESE JERKS!!!

I am hoping that they delay the vote until next week. Or the week after. Or Halloween has a nice ring to it.
