Democrats Lock Senate in Temper Tantrum

The Democrats today invoked a parliamentary procedure locking down the Senate prior to a discussion of Iraq and the indictment of Scooter Libby.

According to The Corner, this was done by Harry Reid without consulting Senate Majority Leader Frist, who is livid.

Methinks that the Democrats know they can't filibuster Alito and are also frustrated by the limited nature of last week's indictment of Libby, and they are panicking and throwing a temper tantrum today. The end result, however, will be a toughening of Republican resolve as Republicans know now, more than ever, that the Democrats refuse to "play nice."

Update: The Democrats aren't likely to be any happier when they learn that today Tom DeLay won his motion to remove from his case the judge who was a contributor to MoveOn.org.

It is really sad that Senator Bill Frist's cameras were turned off.

You know, this tactic of Reid's would only work if the majority in America no longer supported the Iraq war or the current administration.

Oh, wait. That's exactly the case.

Nevermind.

IMHO, this tactic is going to blow up on Reid and the Democrats. We shall see.

Thanks for visiting!
