Filibuster: Only a Sith thinks in absolutes 

I'm still wild about Harry:

Democratic Leader Harry Reid declared an end Monday to compromise talks with Republican leaders over President Bush's controversial judicial nominees, saying their fate along with the future of long-standing filibuster rules will be settled in a showdown on the Senate floor.

"I've tried to compromise and they want all or nothing, and I can't do that," Reid told reporters after a private meeting with Senate Majority Leader Bill Frist, R-Tenn.

Reid calls 'em as he sees 'em:

Reid, who has been trying for more than a month to reach a compromise with Frist, said: "I don't think Senator Frist is capable of working something out on this. I think he is going to try to satisfy the radical right."
(via AP)

And his sense of humor is as dry as the Nevada desert:

Reid and Frist had dinner on Sunday, but Reid said the conversation was limited. "The only talk last night was how good the duck was," Reid told reporters.

Um, maybe that was lame duck? Let's hope so!

NOTE The latest framing by the winger thugs is "Dirty Harry" Reid (here) Frankly, I think the stupid wingers haven't made a bad choice for us. Isn't Reid really saying to Frist: "Now, you must ask yourself one question: Do I feel lucky?" (here)
