With my apologies to Chicago…
Does anyone really know how many Senate Democrats there are?
Does anyone really care?
If so I can’t imagine why
We’ve all got time enough to cry
I wrote waaaaaaay back here, that it wasn’t going to matter how many Senators the Democrats ended up with. There were enough folks abominating the Republican banner on any particular issue that the Dems would have the effect of running the Senate as they saw fit.
Today, nearly eight months past the election, we’re still waiting to see what the final count will be in the Senate. There is a wide belief that the MN Supreme Court will issue their ruling in the Franken/Coleman race before the Fourth of July. It’s also widely believed that the Court will side with Franken. Does it matter? No.
Senator Snowe has come out to say that with something as important as health care:
It is important to get it to be a bipartisan initiative, given the dimensions of health care reform and the implications to all Americans.
Olympia, were you raised by wolves? Were you raised without any parental supervision? Did you live a childhood devoid of friends, acquaintances or any people at all? If no, how did you not, at least once, get the sage advice that if your friends were about to do a stupid thing, it didn’t make the situation better if you also decided to do the stupid thing!
While I doubt it would do any good, could someone please contact Olympia and ask her if she thinks it’s a good decision to jump off a bridge just because all of her friends are doing the same?
Update – Well, there you have it. Franken won the Supreme Court decision. Coleman has conceded and Pawlenty says he will sign the certificate. OK Dems, it’s all yours now…at least for 18 months!
