Nuclear Option

Posted by Bob Brigham

In the opening salvo, Schumer bested Frist

UPDATE 1 - Wednesday 1:54 PM (Bob): Dave Johnson reports, Schumer: "It's like a Banana Republic." Ellen Dana Nagler has the negotiation watch.

UPDATE 2 - Wednesday 2:29 PM (Tim): A wingnut batton pass. From Senator Sessions to Sam Brownback who wastes no time sprinting down the path to regress by taking up the case against gay marriage. This is going to be a long half-hour.

UPDATE 3 - Wednesday 2:38 PM (Bob): In addition to email, phone, and fax, send a telegram. The Manny Miranda email I mentioned earlier also said that the zealots were going to "use all the technology" at their disposal, so let's escalate with some old school technology.

UPDATE 4 - Wednesday 2:54 PM (Bob): ACTION WATCH:
