Because You Can't Spell Defeat Without That (D)

Reid and co. staged their little sleepover in the Senate for nothing. Motion for cloture losses 52-47 (60 votes were needed). As Capt. Ed points out, they ended the marathon session with the exact "same number in support that they had when it started".

All in all it's a net win only for al Qaeda, who are encouraged by this country's lack of unity in its commitment to fight them. Nice job, Harry. Schmuck.

Oh, and the latest Zogby poll has Congressional approval at 14%. Coincidence?

Does Zogby give higher ratings to Democrats in Congress or Al Qaeda?
Does Zogby consider Democrats in Congress members of Al Qaeda?

Just wondering.

Wouldn't turning off the air conditioning in the Capitol show more empathy with the troops in Iraq than reliving the Congressional youth staying up all night? Surely all that energy savings would appeal to the global warming enthusiasts.

Building on AKL's point someone, I don't know who, said "You can trace the downfall of the Republic to the day they air-conditioned the Capital"..
