Just an hour or so ago, Scott Brown suggested to the press that he might be unable to attend tonight's big debate with Elizabeth Warren, because he's stuck in Washington waiting for possible votes tonight. These would be votes relating to a continuing resolution, that is undergoing some wrangling.
Well, there are no more votes tonight. And in case there was any confusion, Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid just took to the floor and said this:
Madam President, I'm so sorry. We have no more
votes today. It's obvious to me what's going on. I've been to a few of
these rodeos. It is obvious there is a big stall taking place. One of
the Senators who doesn't want to debate tonight, won't be in debate.
Well, he can't use the Senate as an excuse - there will be no more votes
As they say in the hallowed and august chambers of the world's greatest deliberative body: OH SNAP!
