Listening to Sen. Max Baucus (D-MT), He Makes Me Sleepy

The democrats are in worse shape than I thought.

The Senate just voted to end debate on Judge Alito, 72-25.

Sen. Max Baucus (D-MT) is still talking.
It must be very depressing to be Ted Kennedy right now.
I need a nap.

President Bush was pleased with the vote today:

I am pleased that a strong, bipartisan majority in the Senate decisively rejected attempts to obstruct and filibuster an up-or-down vote on Judge Sam Alito’s nomination. The Senate has a constitutional responsibility to hold an up-or-down vote on every judicial nominee – and throughout its 216-year history, the Senate has held an up-or-down vote on every Supreme Court nominee with majority Senate support. Judge Alito is extraordinarily well-qualified to serve on our Nation’s highest court, and America is fortunate that this good and humble man is willing to serve. I look forward to the Senate voting to confirm Sam Alito as the 110th Justice of the Supreme Court.
