The community of missing links known as "conservatives" appears to be confused about how to react to yesterday's closing of the Senate by Senate Minority Leader Harry Reid. On the one hand, we have Crazy-Assed Bitch, reluctantly admitting that GOP Senator Bill Frist seemed a bit shell-shocked by this turn of events:
435pmEST. Ok, so the Senate is open again after 2 hours locked down. Is it just me or does Sen. Frist seem shaken? I hope it's just me.
On the other hand, other residents of Dumbfuckistan are trying to put a happy spin on it, like this intellectual over at PowerLineBlog:
The Democrats have forced the Senate into a closed session, demanding answers about the pre-war intelligence on Iraqi WMD. Minority leader Reid used the Libby indictment as a pretext for this meaningless stunt. Presumably, Reid needed a closed door session to prevent the public from witnessing the spectacle of Democrats making fools out of themselves trying to explain the connection between that indictment and pre-war intelligence on Iraq.
The Democrats must feel that they are losing momentum now that the Republicans have their act together on the Supreme Court, and Fitzgerald did not indict Rove. That the Dems see throwing a temper tantrum as a way to regain momentum, rather than as reminder to the public that they are unfit to govern, speaks volumes.
So which is it? Are you conservatives furious about this blatant usurpation of democracy? Or are you delighted by this public spectacle of the Democrats making fools of themselves?
Come now. It's not a difficult question.
