I think four holds have been placed, I know one was from Bernie Sanders.

5. They will easily have their "60 Votes" to reconfirm a criminal, but they can't deliver

Color me surprised.

Oh, I forgot. "I want Obama To Fail, I'm a Debbie Downer, I'm a paid Republican Operative, I would have rather had McCain, I should be on meds because I said something negative, etc, etc, etc."

There, that should please the Gatekeepers lest someone take my post seriously.

Party Line Over LIFE!!!!! :crazy:
