Nuclear Option: 2703 to 1

Posted by Tim Tagaris

2703 - 1.

That's the vote tally of Republicans in the U.S. Senate for the 39 Court of Appeals nominees sent by President Bush. Two thousand and three individual votes cast in the affirmative for the nominees, one single vote against. So much for calling for a "deliberative body," "independent thinking," and allowing each member to "vote their conscience."

via Senator Schumer on the floor, right now.

Sen. Schumer is really rocking, but isn't 39 * 55 significantly less than 2704?
