Two happy campers-- living examples of why we should be able to recall senators

Late tonight, when respectable people were fast asleep, the Senate confirmed Michael Mukasey, a pro-torture/anti-Constitution, ultra-partisan reactionary as Bush's Attorney General. This was engineered by two people, Chuck Schumer (D-NY) and Dianne Feinstein (D-CA). Whatever Mukasey does wrong should be lain on their doorsteps.

Joining every single Republican in voting to confirm, were Schumer, Feinstein and the 4 most right-wing Democrats in the Senate: Ben Nelson (NE), Mary Landrieu (LA), Tom Carper (DE), and Evan Bayh (IN). Needless to say, Connecticut for Lieberman Party hack Joe Lieberman, as with all matters of importance, voted with his Republican chums. Not bothering to stand up and be counted: Hillary, Obama, Biden, and Dodd, all out trying to convince voters they can do a better job than Bush.

We need more and BETTER Democrats.

Too bad our "front runner" candidates couldn't be bothered to vote against Mukasey.

And Dianne Feinstein is a cunt, always has been.

The Repugs, together with some Democrat co-conspirators, had the votes to approve Mukasey, BUT, they didn't have the votes to stop a filibuster which would have effectively ended Mukasey's chances. Instead, we get Harry Reid "leading" the Dems and a surprise decision to quickly hold the vote in a sneaky night session. Reid was so "effective" that many Senators who opposed the nomination had no time to organize any resistance moves, and several senators out on the campaign trail had no time to get back to Washington, even if they actually wanted to vote no (which is, quite frankly, in doubt because it's easy to SAY you would have voted no). One wonders who is REALLY running the Senate. McConnell? Bush? Are there polaroids of Reid in a special drawer in the White House? Who are people like Reid, Schumer, and Feinstein working for? The answer is not us.
