Here's MY Sense Of The Senate

I was getting all set to write a screed on the Senates condemnation of Moveon, but then I realized that they have most likely done Moveon a huge favor. Congress only holds the favor of 11% of the populace. Which means the Senate condemning you would be like having Charlie Manson or Osama Bin Laden criticize you. And if the Senators think this meaningless and hollow resolution against Moveon is going to somehow shift public opinion in their favor, they are very sadly mistaken.

So here is my take on Senate doings of late. If the new math means that Democratic bills must have 60 votes to pass, that must hold true for Republican legislation as well. If Democrats do not have the votes, even as they hold the majority, it is quite obvious that Republicans do not have the votes either.

I wish I could share your optimism on the Dems actually displaying some fortitude here and not joining the Repugs on the censure vote in accordance with the "new math" you described in pursuit of those 60 votes; that's why I pretty much dared all of them to go ahead with their phony baloney censure motion - a pox on every stinking one of them regardless of party as far as I'm concerned.

The new site looks cool, by the way.
