Frist Faces Down Dems

WASHINGTON, D.C. -- Following a demand yesterday from Senator Russ Feingold (D-WI), to censure the President, Senator Majority Leader Bill Frist (R-TN) decided he just might call the Democrats' bluff. Frist has been pushing for an immediate floor vote, and in a scene reminiscent of a Dirty Harry movie, Frist whipped out his .44 Magnum, pointed it at Feingold and said, "Go on punk... make my day."

Democrats in the Senate were obviously feeling a bit squeamish. Not because Frist was toting a handgun on the Senate floor, but because they don't want to commit to a vote to censure President Bush. If they vote to censure, they will appear to be overzealous in attacking the President about a program which most Americans actually favor. If they vote against censure, they will be lambasted by their left-wing base and appear to be acting contradictory to their own recent vitriolic rants. According to Drudge, when pushed on the suggestion for a vote, "Democrat Leader Harry Reid looked like he was going to be sick as he said 'No'..."

Frist knew that the Dems would cave on this one, and he took the opportunity to pressure them saying... "you've got to ask yourself a question: Do I feel lucky? Well, do ya, punks?"

Marge: Or quailing as if they were downright skeert...

Feingold skedaddled out of the Senate immediately after making the motion for the censure and now calls the Dems who failed to support him cowards. Talk about clueless and having a tin ear to go along with his tinfoil hat...

It really is sad isn't it?

Clinton got impeached for a bj, and yet GWB just goes on and on.

Though you may not care to admit it, it's all about who's got their hands on the wheel...

Marge,
Yep... even Cheney's friends on the Republican side of the aisle... (:D)

OLA,
Now there's a guy I'd want for President if I was a Dem. I mean, he embarasses his entire party and everybody on his side of the aisle... and probably didn't even know he was doing it! I would call his political skills somewhat "nuanced", like... almost imperceptible.

Cranky,
If I feel sad, it's for the Democrats. Just kidding... I don't really feel sad at all (:D) Hahahahaha!
