The Giants Weren’t The Only Ones Who Collapsed Last Night

What the hell are the Republicans in the Senate thinking here?

The Senate unexpectedly approved food safety legislation by voice vote Sunday evening, rescuing a bill that floated in limbo for weeks because of a clerical error.

…Democrats first attempted to attach the food safety bill to the two-and-a-half-month spending measure but Republicans balked because they wanted to keep that measure clean, according to Senate aides.

Republicans, however, later agreed to pass it by voice vote.

Why are they agreeing to help get Harry Reid’s ass out of the sling he put it in?

    Didn’t we have something called an “election” last month. You know, where gun-toting racist child abusers told Washington not to do this sort of thing?

    No? It was that fifth of Famous Grouse rearing its pointy little head again? Maybe the bill has a provision for safer scotch. Then I’ll be all better.

    They probably went along in exchange for some vague promise about something-or-other that Reid will fail to keep at his earliest convenience. Suckers.
