8. Maybe they missed Senator Levin
After John Sidney McCain III huffed at Senator Franken about decorum, Senator Levin pointed out that exactly that sort of thing had happened just a couple of hours earlier that same day. Lieberman was allotted 10 minutes, he used it up, and asked that his complete remarks be entered into the record as if read. Senator Franken asked and received unanimous consent, and that was that.

People are dying for lack of access to health care, but Fox is upset because Joseph Lieberman was denied a chance to stammer through the rest of his prepared remarks. Why doesn't Fox have him on so he can read his entire statement in full without interruption? Wouldn't that be a civic-minded thing for them to do?
