      The Dem list is circulating downtown. Why doesn’t the all-knowing Senatus have it posted yet?!?

      Waiting for the official release, but I’d love to see an early copy!

    3. Interesting to see republicans removed Olympia Snowe from the judiciary committee.
      Long battle ahead for any judicial confirmation process.
      Cheers from Chile!

        How can anyone consider Olympia Snowe or Susan Collins for that matter a Republican? She was selected at the “date” for our senator Mary Landreau (D) on “Speak No Truth” night. Here in Louisiana that’s like having two crabs in the same bucket and trying to tell the difference between then.

      Why Eric Holder has not been been brought up on contempt of Congress. The 112th Congress is not doing its job in bring Eric Holder up on charges for not releasing the files and memos on fast and furies. If we the people did not comply we the people would be in jail. It has been a year and a half sense the boarder petrolmen was murdered with the guns Holder let walk across the boarder.
