Has Power! Thank Goodness!

Unfortunately, unless Reid can get a Republican to switch caucuses, he has no choice but to limit their efforts to meaningless non-binding resolutions. Lieberman, smarting over the support given to Ned Lamont by Democrats he believed were his friends, now says that his loyalty to them has suffered serious damage. His “sentimental” attachment to the caucus extends only to the point of cutting off funding for the fight in Iraq. Not only would such an effort fail in the Senate — it would require 60 votes to overcome the filibuster — but it would effectively hand over control of the Senate to the GOP and Mitch McConnell.

Take that you back stabbing Dems!
