Senate Debate Heating Up--Filibuster Soon?

Fri Dec 16, 2005 2:29 am

Just flipped on CSPANII...The Senate debate on the Patriot Act is heating up a bit. A few minutes ago there was a heated exchange between Democrat Russ Feingold (who is threatning to filibuster) and some Republican.

This should get interesting if there is a filibuster...

The Republicans are running the show and they don't have any problem with fighting dirty. Anything the democrats try to do will only come back to haunt them in the future.

Several Republicans have said they might join the filibuster...

Hooray for Russ Feingold! Hopefully they'll stop that stupid thing dead in it's tracks this time around. Yeah, I know, when Hell freezes over...but it is supposed to get mighty cold in Houston this week, so who knows  Smile
