  •  This is RIDICULOUS -- we DON'T need "every vote" (0+ / 0-)

    in the  Senate:  "Every vote in the Senate" IS ONLY 59 VOTES.  On ANYthing halfway controversial, THE WHOLE POINT about blue dogs is that they ARE GUARANTEED to defect! GUARANTEED!! THAT GUARANTEE IS WHAT DEFINES THEM AS BlueDogs!

    So we DON'T have a working majority of 60 and WE STILL WON'T have one EVEN if we get to a nominal majority of 61 or 62!!  So if 58 is what we got, well, GUESS WHAT, WE CAN AFFORD to have that FALL to 53 AS LONG AS all 5 of the people we lose are BlueDogs.  IT WON'T MAKE ANY DIFFERENCE ON ANYTHING.

    The road to hell has not YET been paved with Republicans, but it SHOULD be -- Corrected BumperSticker
