77. What did you expect him to do tho?
He was supposed to have spoken at an earlier time but the backlog of others delayed him so he did not have a chance.

About the only thing he could have done was totally disregard the rules and make some noise et al(and everybody knows what both the reps and media would play that), so instead he got his views added into the log and stated some things in short

107. i'll agree that
its usually quite nice to listen to him speak as he tends to speak calmly, logically and with a fair dose of common sense.

Sounded a little bit like anger tho so i had to make sure :pals:

I do look forward to them finishing with this tho, i want to sleep but refuse to go to sleep until its done since i've watched from the start(just not been posting on here)

Get what the republicans are doing?

They will say they waited until they had information from the "generals on the ground"...so they aren't "cut and runners"...they gave "it time to work"...unlike the Democrats...

101. oh god i hope so!
its nearly 5pm here, which makes it nearly 11am in DC.
I just want this to end. We know how it will probably end. There is nothing, NOTHING this congress has done for 12 LOOONNNGGGGG gop-hateful-controlled years that surprises me anymore. The dems, love them as i do, have really no will anyway. I want, WANT to believe that this can pass, go on, and cause the * W.H. a huge pain in the ass, but it's probably going to die on the floor in 9 minutes. may god forgive us, we are about to loose what little liberty we had.

95. I tried to follow along last night, but my Comcast cable system puts baseball on C-Span 2 sometimes.
Can you believe it? I'm trying to watch Democracy in Action -- see what the Senate is doing in my name -- and Comcast doesn't have another lame sports channel where they can put a baseball game -- so sometimes they just pre-empt C-Span 2 and put the freaking ballgame on. Like last night.
Makes me NUTS!!!!!

Oh, and I still have dialup, so watching online is difficult.

109. Did McConnell talk about "gags and giggles"?
So that's how Republicans spend the hours during a filibuster about ending a bloody occupation that is costing $10,000,000,000 a month and is destroying the men and women of our armed forces...

That's an interesting insight into the Republican caucus.

115. Here's the Prayer that puts the lie to our claim of religious freedom
Why the hell do we pray in our Congress anyway? WTF?

If we saw the Iranians do it, we would have no problem labelling them as "whack jobs"...
