Dick Durbin on Senate floor, "The Democrats have decided we are going to have a REAL FILIBUSTER" !!!
over the Iraq War legislature that the repukes keep filibustering! It sounds like the Democrats are going to filibuster until they get their bills passed! :bounce: :bounce:

He's on the Senate floor RIGHT NOW. C-SPAN 2.

2. they are forcing the repugs to filibuster. Rather than just not voting
Edited on Mon Jul-16-07 03:41 PM by rainy
the dems are holding the floor open so that the repugs have to keep talking for 30 hrs.

5. Listening to the Repugs talk for 30 hours
just might cause brain damage.

Be warned.

13. Au contraire, There might be nothing more cathartic for the country...
... The "they knows not what they do" defense will no longer hold water.

12. Turned the sound off, just watching on my screen.
Getting Cspaned out here. I'd like to see an old fashioned knock down, drag em out fight on the floor. Fists flying and Graham crying.
Hey, a person can dream, can't they?! All this politeness is making me nauseous.

15. I agree! I often wonder how the hell the Democrats can continue to control themselves
and not beat the living crap of of the likes of Sessions, Brownback, Lindsey Graham, John Kyl, Inhoffe, John Cornyn, and their ILK???

They all have to be on blood pressure medication!!!

22. I think that they have to
CSPAN 2 must show the Senate whenever it is in session, and CSPAN1 must show the house. They may move it to CSPAN1 if the house is out, but it must be shown.

18. Man, Warner is trying to sidetrack Durbin as best he can. Within the limits of Senate
debate, but pretty transparent. Durbin looks to stop this.

19. Geez, Sessions comes up. Another sidetrack. They (R) are avoiding the amendment.
Is arguing that we can't 'change policy' again...while we're on what? plan E, part III of the Bushco doctrine?

24. Wait a minute -- he might run outside and apologize again.
He did that one time after criticizing the Guantanamo Concentration Camp.

28. Grassley has a certain kind of charm when he's in a good mood.
Makes me think of Billy Bob Thornton. This is really boring w/ the sound off.
