Conservatives Scramble Before Elections

Yeah, yeah.  I know, Busby lost.  But if you don’t think that the Republicans are getting a little edgy, just check out the docted for this year’s House of Representatives:

The Washington Monthly

Building votes? Proponents of the amendment couldn’t break 50 and bring this to the Senate floor in 2004 and they fell short of the same threshold again this year. At the rate they’re going, supporters might be able to get the two-thirds they need sometime around 2026. Good luck with that. Well, at least this nonsense is behind us, right? Wrong. House Majority Leader John Boehner (R-Ohio) said he plans to bring this same silly amendment to the floor next month, despite the fact that it already lost in the Senate. Well, at least the Senate can get back to substantive policy issues, right? Wrong. Next up: flag-burning. It’s going to be a long summer.

I feel compelled to point out that they did manage to sell out the Internet, and certainly I think we can all agree, that’s an accomplishment.
