Well, it snowed. Sort of.

Every weather forecaster in the world is fired. My kids hate you.

The day in Congress wasn't interrupted by the weather. The House passed its continuing resolution to avoid the government shutdown at the end of the month. Provided the Senate agrees, of course. Meanwhile, Caitlin Halligan's DC Circuit nomination got filibustered the lame way, and John Brennan's CIA nomination got filibustered the exciting way.

We'll catch up with that and all the latest fresh outrage.

We're LIVE at 9 a.m. ET with Kagro in the Morning, thanks to

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.

    the Rand paul filibuster is over, due to an unexpected bathroom break.

    "I've discovered there are some limits to filibustering, and I'm going to have to take care of one of those in a few minutes," Paul said to laughter, before yielding the floor at 12:39am ET on Thursday.
    The March 9 Newtoiwn to DC ride is 2 days away, with stops in Frenchtown (Sen Menendez) and Baltimore (inner city violence counts as well).

  •  How About That Paul Talking Filibuster? (1+ / 0-)
    Recommended by:

    Any Thoughts?

    My only thought was that it was not a "true" talking filibuster in the Jimmy Stewart - Mr. Smith sense or in the sense of what Senator Merkley proposed in January.  If it were, Ron Paul's bathroom break at 12:39am would have been the automatic end to the filibuster, but it wasn't.  So today we still need to take a cloture vote to end this filibuster even though it has now gone back to the usual silent mode.

    Still it was good to see extended debate being used as originally intended.  And it did show that it can be done if a Senator feels strongly enough about an issue and his position on it.  In fact, although I don't have any love for Ron Paul by any means, what he did yesterday might result in some meaningful legislation that would put some congressional constraints on future Presidents use of killer drones within the US.  And that I would be a good thing.

    I think that Reid had previously filed the cloture petition on the nomination before the Paul talking filibuster which is going to be voted on today.

    Correct me if I'm wrong, but I think Paul was simply using up some of the time for the Petition to "ripen" by actually speaking.  As I said in my previous comment, Paul yielding the floor did not result in an end to the filibuster nor did it provide for an immediate cloture vote.  It seemed to simply provide an opportunity for the Senate to recess so they could all go home.

  •  Congressional District Polls on Background Checks (0+ / 0-)

    Saw this on Maddow's show last night and found it very interesting.

    Bloomberg’s Mayors Against Illegal Guns released district-by-district polls Tuesday morning showing overwhelming support for that step in each of the seven Philly-area House districts controlled by Republicans.

    The support for universal background checks ranged from 100 percent reported in New Jersey Rep. Chris Smith’s district to 89 percent in Jon Runyan’s South Jersey district (voters in Frank LoBiondo’s Jersey district were at 95 percent support). In the Pennsylvania suburbs represented by Charlie Dent, Mike Fitzpatrick, Jim Gerlach and Pat Meehan support ranged from 90 to 96 percent.
