  •  Harry Reid took it on the chops today (5+ / 0-)

    I think we now know who the core Dems really are, and they aren't the ones in these photos. Interesting that all of the Dem senators who stuck with Lieberman are on this list, as well. Reid really got suckered. First, by Lieberman, saying "Oh, of course I'm a good Democrat" and "Oh, of course I intend to caucus with the Democrats". As today's vote shows, it doesn't really matter, after all, who you caucus with if you truly don't care about basic human decency. Why should Reid and Schumer believe anything Holy Joe says? None of us do.
    And then Harry found out that it doesn't matter what deal you think you've struck with the Repubs, they lie. Rinse and repeat:  THEY LIE. Reid must have hoped that at least one amendment would pass, allowing the bill to be stalled until after the election. Didn't happen. Wasn't going to happen. Sadly, the Democratic roster in the Senate is a lot smaller than we thought before today.
