None Shall Pass

Boy, the Dems are beboppin’ and scattin’ all over the Republicans today. Where'd they find the balls? Senate Democrats forced a closed session to talk about that whole investigation into Iraq thing that the Republicans decided to put off until after the election. Which made sense, I mean why would the voters want to know how the Iraq intelligence was misused by the White House before they cast their votes?

Anyway, the Senate Dems are doing a nice bit of old fashioned grandstanding and damn, are the Republicans pissed!

Sen. Trent Lott, R-Miss., said Reid was making "some sort of stink about Scooter Libby and the CIA leak." [ed. – talk about making a mountain out of a “treason in the White House” molehill!]

In addition, Lott said, Reid's move violated the Senate's tradition of courtesy and consent. But there was nothing in Senate rules enabling Republicans to thwart Reid's effort.
Breaking Senate traditions? Those poor helpless Republicans wouldn’t know anything about that, would they?
