    In the worst case scenario the Republicans and Oil  Dems like Senator Landrieu will block several cloture votes...then lose.

    And they'll lose with the shame of having gone to the mat to protect the people who destroyed the coastlines of at least five (mostly Republican) states.

    The GOP is again in the position of needing the Democrats to bail them out of their own misguided values.

    The problem is, after the vociferous health care reform battle, Democrats just aren't into doing that as much as they used to.

    What this oil spill needs is more cowbell.
