    By pro forma session, I'm imagining a single Senator coming into the empty Senate chambers, having the Sergeant at Arms bring out the mace, banging the gavel, then calling it a day?

    Hey, whatever it takes to keep Bush from recess-appointing another raving lunatic.

    Waster of electrons, unlawful enemy combatant.

      I think it might take two senators--one to preside and one to move to adjourn until three days hence (plus sundry Senate staff, including said mace-bearer).

      People are too literal about Donnie McLurkin's ex-gay testimony--it's the "faithiness" that counts.
