Beat me again
I can only assume that the majority of people in North Carolina, South Carolina and Alabama either don't read newspapers or have no internet access. In the worst economic times since the great depression the senate today set out to get something done about unemployment that's about to run out for millions of Americans. The "No" party has held up this bill for over three weeks now with the threat of a filibuster. Today however senate democrats got a vote for cloture which simply puts an end to the "No" partys' nonsense. The vote was 87 to 13 meaning that the debate is over something that shouldn't have been in the first place. The 13 were of course from those you'd expect, our wonderful obstructionist "No" party. Sessions, Demint, and Grahm voted against. How can these people live with themselves? I'm certain that if you went boating with one of these guys and you fell overboard they'd throw you an anchor rather that have to perform CPR. But I really wonder about the people who put these guys in office. These are states that have some of the worst unemployment, the worst healthcare and refused federal funds to help their economies. Do the people of these states like getting beaten or what? Vote for me and I'll screw you over, steal your money and when you dead on the street I'll complain about your corpse cluttering up the sidewalk.

Then there's Joe LIEberman who's threatening to hold up healthcare reform. If the people of Conn. don't wise up and throw that bum out of office the next election cycle then the Dems should strip him of any power. Let him sit with the "Nos" and he can sink on their Titantic.
