What Is Reid Smoking???

Yeah, you really gave ’em Hell, Harry…

Under the terms, Democrats would agree to oppose any attempt to filibuster — and thus block final votes — on the confirmation of Priscilla Owen, Janice Rogers Brown and William Pryor. There is “no commitment to vote for or against” the filibuster against two other conservative nominees, Henry Saad and William Myers.

(snip)

Democratic Leader Harry Reid of Nevada welcomed the agreement — although he hastened to say he remains opposed to some of the nominees who will now likely take seats on the appeals court.

“We have sent President George Bush, Vice President Dick Cheney and the radical right of the Republican party an undeniable message….the abuse of power will not be tolerated.”

Um… WTF???

    “We promise not to use the filibuster unless we really really have to! Ha! We sure showed them!”

    This is a fucking disaster. The Dems might as well call themselves wimps ‘r’ us, with the jellyfish mascot and all.

    Des: It’s in your profile settings.

    With Frist filing for cloture on Myers, I think we’re going to get our first look at the Republicans’ “This is not extraordinary circumstances! Democrats are breaking the deal! We have no choice but to go nukular now!” strategy. Fun times.

    Good to see ya gettin’ oot & aboot, LJ!
