Lincoln to Hold Town Halls in September

Lincoln schedules town hall meetings, but this fellow is probably not invited.
K.R. James reports that Senator Blanche Lincoln will hold town hall meetings after all (three in September). He also opines that it might not matter anymore, because liberal Democrats are about to exercise what amounts to a "nuclear option". This is an obscure maneuver that will end-run the Senate filibuster and only require 50+1 votes to pass into law. Back when the GOP held a slim majority the press considered it an unthinkable breach of protocol for this tactic to be used. Let's see if they remember that when the Democrats try it.

The Republican posers will play their part beautifully, sqwaking and finger pointing-- acting as if things would've been much different under their control when, in reality, they are merely the necessary complement to the liberals, enablers for the socialist agenda.

Let us not forget the Bush era of unaccountable GOP spending and trampling of the constitution. When it mattered, they only contributed to our problems in their own special predetermined way.

So, of course the nuclear option is on the table. The GOP wouldn't have it any other way.

Good points. So the nuclear option is only OK to grow government, not shrink it!
