Republicans in the Senate Finally Act Like They Are the Majority

Well... The Republicans in the Senate have called the Democrats bluff. There will be an up or down vote on Alito on Tuesday. It's about time and I hope we see more of this in the future.

The Democrats have a lot of egg on their face after the confirmation hearings. Senator Byrd (D-WVa) took them to the woodshed yesterday (no idea what was in his Wheaties). But he really nailed it. The Democratic performance has been disgraceful and Alito is a good man and a fine judge.

Anyway, nice to see majortiy rule has broken out in the U.S. Senate.

It's interesting that it appears that the Dem's really were exploring the filibuster option.

It was quiet enough that it didnt seem they were pushing the filibuster for appearance sake to the left wing, but rather were looking for an excuse, any excuse to get a filibuster.

The Senate election in '06 will be the up or down vote as to whether another alito can be appointed in the remaining Bush term.
