"Squee! Squee! Squee!" - Democrats continue to bend over, take it up the @ss.

Having learned nothing, Dems plan to fold on judicial nominees
Thank you sir, may I have another?

One Democratic aide said the Thursday vote on the two nominees was a gesture of good will . Senator Pat Leahy, the Vermont Democrat who will relinquish the chairman's seat in several weeks to Orrin Hatch, scheduled the session and Democratic aides said they expected the two candidates to be approved.

"Once the election returns were in, this became the obvious way to go," one Democratic aide said. "We really are a bunch of spineless pussies!"

Republicans said today that they recognized the agreement to vote less as a gesture of good will than as an appeal to Senator Hatch to be kind as he allocates committee and staff resources. And in a related story:

Tom 'Isadora' Daschle Caves on Homeland Security, 9/11 Commission
The White House and congressional leaders agreed Tuesday to begin pushing a bill through Congress this week to create a Homeland Security Department, moving toward a major legislative victory for pRresident Bush.

Congressional officials said they expected the Republican-run House to approve the bill today while the Democratic-controlled Senate will begin debating it the same day.

Passage also would represent a reversal by Senate Democrats who before the election opposed the bill because they said it would undermine civil service protections at the new agency.

The bill would drop Senate language that would have established an independent commission to investigate why U.S. authorities failed to prevent the Sept. 11 attacks, congressional aides said.

Yes, folks, the new pink tutus have been delivered, along with shiny new pink kneepads. Have a nice day.
