Lew, with Democrats threatening not to allow Burris to enter the sacred chamber of the Senate, and Republicans threatening not to let Al Franken in if Minnesota certifies him the winner (rather than recounting and litigating, wouldn’t it simply make sense to hold a run-off election in Minnesota?) the Senate should be the most interesting and entertaining it has been in years. Almost makes me wish I could be a Capitol Hill reporter again.
(Wish someone would filibuster legislation with that much intended fervor. How long has it been since someone’s read from the Bible or the phone book on the senate floor?)8:54 pm on January 3, 2009 Email Charles H. Featherstone
