Comments

Plays like a scene from "Mr. Smith Goes to Washington" (gawd I love that movie)

What I don't get is why Cheney left his bugs in the Senate offices and how you got the transcripts. I think this is a criminal matter requiring special council that a bipartisan majority in Congress could get behind.

Fantastic stuff, publius.

There is much truthiness in publius's transcript of the Baucus Caucus meeting. Well done!

Believable.

it was better than Cats

The doritos stuff was a nice touch. A jar of lo-fat mayonnaise and a spoon would've worked, too.

Thoroughly unrealistic. The Republicans Senators would never *really* be like that. They would be far more uncompromising and have far less concern for anybody other than the rich. :-P

Far too lenient.

If I were one of the 345,937 people who voted for Max Baucus in 2008, I would be feeling very special right now.

It's all about the filibuster.

Let's keep in mind that Senator Baucus (whose substantial support through campaign contributions from the health insurance industry has many understandably concerned) is in charge of one Senate committee.

What happens in Senate Finance does not determine the ultimate bill that arrives on the president's desk.

I humbly suggest that we need to ID the Democrats who might potentially filibuster a bill with a public option, and organize an onslaught of calls and letters.

When I was a waiter many years ago I waited on Bingaman several times. He really is a man of few words.

"Over easy, dry toast..decaf..thanks"

"I humbly suggest that we need to ID the Democrats who might potentially filibuster a bill with a public option, and organize an onslaught of calls and letters."

I think you mean "potentially filibuster a bill without a public option." You can only filibuster against a bill: not for one.

I think you're being overly generous to Bingaman.

He's about as useless as tits on a boar, unless he's bringing another wing of aircraft to the State...He's got us the murder-drone training base, now, too.
