Block Buster

I'm thinking the Dems will be looking for one:

Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell announced this morning that Republicans will block any legislation from coming to the Senate floor until two key economic issues are addressed: funding the government (the "continuing resolution" which must pass to prevent a government shutdown) and the extension of the Bush-era tax cuts.

McConnell said that members of his caucus are united in the pledge to use procedural votes to prevent any other non-economic issues -- including the new START treaty, the DREAM Act, or the defense authorization bill that contains a potential repeal of the military's Don't Ask Don't Tell policy - from coming to the floor for debate.

Get in their face Mr. McConnell... and stay there.   Block everything these radicals are doing.  It's too damned bad this strategy wasn't adopted much, much sooner.

Do math much?

There were not the votes before. We're lucky to be able to hold the filibuster now - something people should consider the next time they want to go raving about Snowe or Collins - or Lugar. Or Graham. Or Imhofe.

The 2010 elections just told the politicians (who care to listen and preserve their jobs) which way the wind is blowing.

Only the die-hards who want to commit political suicide will be joining Barry, Nancy and Harry.
