Franken wins in Minnesota; the Democrats have 60

That 60 is the magic number to provide a filibuster-proof Senate. Doesn’t matter much as Republicans are crossing over fast and furious.

How long until the Dems screw it all up? Oh, wait…

    Not on subject……

    “read my lips, no new taxes”
    George HW Bush, 1988 Republican Convention

    “I have never taken illegal, performance enhancing drugs.”
    Sammy Sosa, before Congress 2005

    “I did not have sexual relations with that woman, Miss Lewinsky. I never told anybody to lie…”
    Bill Clinton January 1998

    “I did not insert into the stimulus bill an amendment that allowed AIG to give bonuses to employees that wrecked the company”
    Sen. Chris Dodd, April 2009

    I can make a firm pledge, under my plan no family making less than $250,000 a year will see any form of tax increase, not your income tax, not your payroll tax, not your capital gains tax, not any of your taxes..
    Sen. Barack Obama, Dover, NH
    Sept. 12, 2008

  2. Kathryn says:

    Back to the subject: phooey. A cross-over 60 is better than an unassailable we-can-do-anything 60, and the thought of Franken is just disheartening.

  3. As the kids say, true that.
