I'd Fill Her Buster, What Ho!

Y'know, you'd think that, since Mitch McConnell was presumably part of the Republican effort to threaten to bust out the "nuclear option" if the Dems filibustered Bush's Supreme Court candidates, he'd feel a little bit dirty if he threatened to use the tactic himself. But, no, that would actually require shame on his part. For you see, McConnell, the GOP Senate leader, has gone on the record to say that any piece of legislation relating to the War in Iraq will be automatically filibustered by the GOP, requiring 60 votes to pass. Because, once again, it's okay when you do it, but not when the other guys do it.

Well, it looks like Harry Reid is actually calling him on his BS. Harry Reid has announced that tonight, he'll be keeping the Senate in session for the entire night for a debate on the latest legislation, until a conclusion is reached. It might not do a lot, but at least Reid's not taking this garbage sitting down.
