The Day Of Reckoning?

Harry Reid said he wanted to seat Al Franken by April 1. John Cornyn said he was going to hold his breath and turn blue if Reid tried it. What will happen?

What I would like to think would happen is that Reid would just say “Screw it” and trigger the nuclear option. After all, it’s already on the table for the budget bill. Might as well get it over with.

    Reid will cave. This has been another edition of simple answers to complicated questions, as Atrios would say.

    Reid is a feckless wanker. I hope he gets primaried. We deserve better from a supposed Democratic leader.

  3. I’m actually kinda glad he did, as the Republicans had already started making April Fool’s jokes about Al’s possibly being seated today.

    But it does sound as if they’re preparing to seat him once the Minnesota Supreme Court finishes deep-sixing Norm’s appeal. Though that would require a guy from a Red state whose re-elect numbers for next year are shaky to actually exhibit a spine.
