So I see that Harry Reid has suddenly realized that he doesn’t have the votes to put together a 1.1 trillion buck omnibus pork-extravaganza. Ain’t that a shame. I also got sent a link to this incredibly, amazingly, and absolutely hysterical kick-sand-in-their-faces from our esteemed Republican Senators:
Minutes later, in one of the most chortling colloquies of the 111th Congress, Sens. John McCain (R-AZ) and Mark Kirk (R-IL) gloated over the defeat of the spending bill.
Kirk, the most junior member of the Senate asked, “Did we just win?”
McCain responded, “I think there’s very little doubt that the Majority Leader of the United States Senate would not have taken the action he just took if we didn’t have 41 votes to stop this monstrosity.”
Kirk continued, “so for economic conservatives, a 1,924-page bill just died?
“A 1,924-page bill just died,” McCain responded laughing.
Is it time for the Democratic party’s theme song? It is time for the Democratic party’s theme song.
