Following morning business, the Senate will proceed to Executive Session to consider Calendar #438, John M. Gerrard, of Nebraska, to be United States District Judge for the District of Nebraska with up to 90 minutes of debate, 60 minutes equally divided and controlled between Senators Leahy and Grassley, or their designees and 30 minutes under the control of Senator Sessions or his designee.

Upon the use or yielding back of time (at approximately 5:30pm), the Senate will conduct a roll call vote on confirmation of the Gerrard nomination.

p.s. We will get a hint regarding if the GOP is going to retaliate against President Obama for making those four recess appoints while the Senate was in 'recess/pro-forma session'. If each and every one of the GOPers vote 'no' on the Gerrand nomination - then "it's war!"

1. They are going to act like pissy little cockroaches as if Bush never did this

with his own recess appointments like the one of John Robert Bolton to the U.N. that proved to be a disaster.

It's a given this is going to be a bloody session of Congress metaphorically speaking.

Democrats should hold fast and punch back in a never give an inch fashion too. Especially if Newt becomes the nominee.

They should give him all the chance in the world to show what a petty pinhead of a demagogue he really is. Because the public will pick up on this and it will help them mane the right choice to send him into permanent retirement in November 2012.

2. "No man's life, liberty, or property are safe while the legislature is in session. "


Gideon J. Tucker in Final Accounting in the Estate of A. B. (1866)

This should be chiseled over the door of the US Capitol.
