Gosh, by golly, someone is going to get a stern talking to, and maybe even frowned at.

Those dastardly Republicans are refusing to stop their temper tantrums even though they don't even have to tantrum.

Those on the left hand side of the aisle are a trifle bemused that the Republicans have reneged upon their solemn [fingers crossed behind their back no doubt] promise. They believe this time the leaders of the minority need to go stand in the corner to learn the lesson once and for all.

If they do it again will a severely worded missive be issued?

Senate Democratic leaders have engaged in preliminary discussions about how to address Republican procedural obstruction, according to a senior Democratic aide, reflecting an awareness that key administration and judicial vacancies might never be filled, and that a watered-down rules reform deal the parties struck early this Congress has failed.
Who could have foreseen such boorish behavior?

Surely they would have chipped in?

Seriously isn't a handshake worth its weight in gold?

By golly they are tricky Dickies, they say one thing and do another, fool us once, fool us every time, ye gads.

Who knew!

Will Democrats resort to the nuclear option, and snub them at tea time?

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.
