Dems Make Themselves Useful for a Change

Can someone please tell them, though, that making this sort of announcement on a Friday afternoon is not the way to capture a news cycle? Jebus.

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-Nev.) has decided to keep the chamber in session over the Thanksgiving break to block President Bush from making any unsavory recess appointments while Senators are out of town.

In a statement inserted in the record Friday, the Majority Leader said he will hold the Senate in a series of pro forma or nonvoting sessions to prevent the controversial practice.

…"With the Thanksgiving break looming, the administration informed me that they would make several recess appointments," Reid said. "I indicated I would be willing to confirm various appointments if the administration would agree to move on Democratic appointments.

"They would not make that commitment."
Of course they wouldn't. You shouldn't even be trying to strike bargains with these assmonkeys, anyway. Let the entire government come to a standstill—who fucking cares? It's not like they're doing anything for the American people, anyway. Wev.
