Blocking Shrub

Once again, the senate is blocking shrub from making any recess appointments:

The US Senate is holding special one man sessions throughout Christmas and the New Year to prevent President George W. Bush from making appointments without the approval of the Democratic majority.

With the bang of a gavel, Democratic Senator Jim Webb declared the first session open on Sunday morning before closing it seconds later, without any of his colleagues present in the hall.


Good for them. As aggravating as the senate can be, at least they're stopping one travesty.

The Senate needs to do whatever it can to keep Dumbya from sneaking in any more goofballs. Didn't he do that with Bolton? There have been a number of others too, if I recall correctly, mostly judges? Bush is a real scheisenstein, and I am glad there are only 390 days left until he is out of office, unless he finds a way to stay in office permanently.

I love this - I'm glad they finally found a way to thwart him.

Snave, I share your concern that he may look for a way to stay in office permanently! Then we'd have to have a revolution...

Somebody needs to point to this when they start screaming that the Democrats aren't doing anything.
