The stupid. And the reality:
Al Franken's office has been reaching out to a lot of folks this evening making the point that Sen. Franken refused to let Sen. Lieberman go over his alloted 10 minutes because he was under strict instructions from the leadership to keep everyone to the clock so that they don't run out of time to get this thing done before Christmas.
And that's why we pretty much write off anything coming out of the Blogging Tories as uneducated, pig-ignorant swill. I'm sure you understand.
