Democratic senators stay with Reid… so far

Another big step cleared, apparently.

From the Washington Post:

Senate Majority Leader Harry M. Reid (Nev.) appears to have secured the 60 votes needed to move an $848 billion health-care reform bill to the Senate floor for debate.

After days of indecision, Sen. Blanche Lincoln (Ark.) — the final Democratic holdout — announced Saturday afternoon that she has decided to support a procedural motion to break a GOP filibuster. Reid now expects all 60 members of his caucus to vote yes at 8 p.m. Saturday, clearing the way for amendment deliberations to begin after the Thanksgiving recess….

Two other undecided Democrats, Sens. Ben Nelson (Neb.) and Mary Landrieu (La.), also announced their support in the final hours before the Saturday vote.

Again, @@ and Dusty, I can only judge AmVet based on what I have read with my own two eyes. I see a sincerity in his point of view regardless of how it is packaged and despite the fact that he and I often end up on opposite sides of the issues. Ditto for several of the other “liberal” posters, chief among them USinUK, josef, Normal, TnGelding, and Bosch.

I respect the fact that you have had a difficult history with him for whatever reason, but it wouldn’t be fair for me to hold that against him no more so than it would be fair for me to pick up any grudges he may have toward you.

“Bruno- Vote for the democrat the, like you did the last time.”

This health care fiasco is far from done. Those that vote for this nonsense will have to await the judgement of the electorate in 2010. Most important legislation is put off in an election year so the politicos can get another term before the electorate forgets what the last hurrah was all about. Most Americans won’t forget who voted for this, however. This goes too deep. Those who walk out on a limb today risk losing their seat in the next election. Bozo’s numbers are going South. Wonder how many of those running in 2010 will shun Bozo’s endorsement if he continues to head down. Approval rating at about 49% and dropping. Is America waking up?

It’s getting kind of old, frankly. We need all types of creative people. Some think there’s more of a role for government than others. Sometimes those folks who feel that way win decisive elections and they effect changes; sometimes they don’t and government’s role is rolled back. It’s cyclical.

I was so shocked by the craftiness she had that I was truly stumped. I asked her where she got her fact and she read her little note. Then she asked me what I liked about Sarah, and I talked about the Constitution…

Norah also claims I told her I voted (on her twitter). That is not true. She never asked my age or if I voted. I’m 17 I couldn’t have voted…and I don’t live in an ACORN district so I didn’t have a chance to even register illegally. Making that statement by Norah completely false.

“The Europeans are attempting to build a better mouse trap against our President in Squeak.”

@@–Only tangentially related, but did you ever see the famous memo from Microsoft about how to properly clean the balls of your mouse? I’ll see if I can find it.

“If a mouse fails to operate or should it perform erratically, it may need a ball replacement. Mouse balls are now available as FRU (Field Replacement Units).

Because of the delicate nature of this procedure, a replacement of mouse balls should only be attempted by properly trained personnel. Before proceeding, determine the type of mouse balls by examining the underside of the mouse.

Domestic balls will be larger and harder than foreign balls. Ball removal procedures differ depending upon the manufacturer of the mouse. Foreign balls can be replaced using the pop off method. Domestic balls are replaced by using the twist off method.

Mouse balls are not usually static sensitive. However, excessive handling can result in sudden discharge.

Upon completion of ball replacement, the mouse may be used immediately.

It is recommended that each person have a pair of spare balls for maintaining optimum customer satisfaction. Any customer missing his balls should contact the local personnel in charge of removing and replacing these necessary items.

Please keep in mind that a customer without properly working balls is an unhappy customer. “

Redneck Convert –

Thanks for the bigotry. It is always nice to see a “tolerant” liberal show how close-minded and hateful he is.

Keep on hating them evil old Christians, bigot.

As usual, Jay shows that there is one form of bigotry that is always welcome on his blog.

Did you see the end of the Ole Miss/LSU game? I don’t know what the hell Miles was thinking.

“Best post eva Bruno.”

Can’t take much credit for it. It’s rumored to be a true memo, though I would have my suspicions.

Truces in place on Fri and Sat nights.

I don’t expect people to care or even remember, but I….do so….hate emoticons.

Bluto….do you mind if I call you, Bluto?

I voted for her in the primary, hoping that we’d have two experienced candidates to choose from in the general. If a democrat was to win, she’d have made a better president imo.

I voted for Bill first time ’round. I thought the party gave her a raw deal during the campaign. Like I said, the dems are the party of misogyny and racism. Always have been, just took me a while to figure it out. Never again!

I’m outta here.

ABM,

His non answer about why he didn’t send the field goal unit in for that last second was pretty dumb too, but what I really don’t understand is why they let about 13 seconds run off the clock before calling time out on fourth down. I picked Ole Miss today and I thought they blew it for sure.

Not entirely faulty logic.

“I voted for Bill first time ’round.”

I realize it takes courage to admit something like that, so 1/2 brownie point to you for courage.

My Presidential voting record: Reagan, Reagan, Bush I, Ross Perot, Ross Perot, Bush II, Bush II, McCain. I have voted for several Democrats at the state/county level, Sam Nunn being among those.

That’s gotta be 2 of the top 3 of dumbest coaching decisions made today. Depending on the Tenn/Vandy and KY/GA game he may get to move down a slot or two, but so far Les Miles is looking pretty dumb right about now.

I know you’re not a spread player, but they didn’t cover. I’m a measly 1-2 today. Only have an “over” bet working tonight. I was going to take Kentucky (+7) over Georgia, but layed off that game.
