Overthrowing the rotten-apple cart

Someone must've finally gotten around to giving the co-dependent Democrats their long-needed spine injection. Invoking an arcane Senate rule, Minority Leader Harry Reid (D-NV) forced the Senate into closed session to discuss the long-DeLayed Phase 2 report on Plamegate.

The upshot is that this throws Bush's nomination of Scalito completely off the news cycle - sort of a procedural "f--- you" to Bush for his return to a complete disregard for advise and consent in the wake of conservatives scuttling the Harriet Miers nomination (she wasn't Nazi enough for them).

Needless to say, the Republicans were not happy that the Democrats dared to do something other than shut up and meekly take their daily @$$-reaming. Senate Intelligence Committee chairman Pat Roberts (R-KS) spent his face time lying about the progress (or lack thereof) of the report.

But Bill Frist (R-Insider Trading) takes the cake with his comments:
Since I’ve been majority leader, I have to say, not with the previous Democratic leader or the current Democratic leader, have I ever been slapped in the face with such an affront to the leadership of this grand institution.

Yeah, how dare those evil, terrorist, spawn-of-Satan Democrats actually stand up for a change? How dare they place national security above petty partisan politics?

For the next year and a half I can’t trust Sen. Reid.

Guess what, Cat Killer - none of the grassroots level Dems EVER trusted you from the get-go.

The United States Senate has been hijacked by the Democratic leadership.

Oh, quit whining. I assmue you know how to abuse the Senate rules better than Sen. Reid allegedly does. You could've easily spiked the closed session by illegally declaring any and all statements that do not verbally fellate Commander Codpiece irrelevant and abruptly resume normal Senate operations. I mean, it's not like the Republicans have abused power in that fashion before, right?

They have no convictions, they have no principles, they have no ideas.

Yeah, and they're a bunch of poopy-heads, too! >_<x
