    Ben Nelson sez "nay".

    Looks like it's going to crash and burn.

    Quite frankly, I care not how this garbage goes down, as long as it does so.

    It's 57-41.

    Harry Reid just voted "nay"...WTF?

    Reid is very forgetful. He probably meant to vote "I'm smart enough, I'm good enough and dog gone it people like me!"

    All the facts aren't even known yet about the whole derivatives mess, but that certainly doesn't stop the government from trying to further regulate it.

    It's not like the government is known for conscientious fact-finding before passing bills anyway.

    Just another day in DC.

    This one is going to be hilassarious.

    The right wing idiots siding with the big coprs who fucked us over and then hedged the bets for watching us crash and burn. They made money on our hides coming and going and these idiots rush to their defense.

    Can you say vote killing issue for the right.
