Closed Session Antics
I wish I had time to post about this closed session move on the part of Senate Democrats. Here’s the short version though:
Now that you’ve found your cajones, I hope you don’t lose them.
If you’re not up to speed on the closed session of congress, and the hissy fit that Bill Frist threw,
all you really need to know is on Fafblog, in an entry I would have written if I could have.
In short, you should enjoy as much as possible watching Republicans who whine about congress being “hijacked” for an investigation of why we went to war. After all, just recently we had congress hijacked because of one person in a persistent vegetative state.
Frist had a front row seat for the video, remember?
Where was the worry then that we were not having the people’s business done? Frist, sit down and stop whining.

Frist was very whiny! Aw, what's a matter, sonny? Somebody take your ball? Well, you weren't playing nice, so maybe that's why. Miserable f***.
"There was no discussion with Senator Reid before he [offered] the resolution" to go to closed session, Frist said. "Zero."
Reid curtly dismissed Frist's concerns. "Consult with the leader so he can stop me from moving on this? What do you mean, consult him?" Reid snapped, answering a reporter's question. The failure to move ahead with the Iraq investigation, he said, is "a slap in the fact to the American people."
Yes, let's consult the Chief Foot Dragger and Lackey for President Shit-for-Brains on how we should conduct an investigation that is supposed to be going on
as we speak.
Bite me, doughboy.
I hope, as you do, James, that the Democrats don't misplace their new-found balls.
Hit 'em hard. Hold their feet to the fire. Because if they don't, the Democrats will become truly irrelevant.
