Democrats force a rare closed session today in an attempt to get Republicans off the mark on Iraq war intelligence investigations (CNN, WaPo). Something I’m sure they’d rather be shelved indefinately. Rule 21, or in translation – Dems getting a backbone. Sign of things to come? Here’s hoping.

“I demand, on behalf of the American people, that we understand why these investigations aren’t being conducted,” Senate Minority Leader Harry Reid

Republicans were shocked and awed. “The Senate has been hijacked” hollers Frist. An affront he says. Yeah. Let’s make a list of the current “affronts” upon the American people shall we? No? Thought so. Then STFU Mr. Frist and let’s have a thorough intelligence review. How soon they forget shutting off microphones. Affront. That’s a good one.
