Demagangery

From The Fix at The Washington Post:

Evan Bayh’s announcement […] that he and 14 other Democratic senators had begun to meet weekly to discuss ways in which the moderate/centrist wing of the party could ensure its voice is better heard by the White House and Senate leadership is the latest example of the Indiana Democrat’s increased willingness to critique — and tweak — the Obama administration.

GOP: Gratutitously Obstructing Progress

From the Los Angeles Times:

The Senate overwhelmingly approved the nomination of Hillary Rodham Clinton as President Obama’s secretary of State on Wednesday, after a one-day delay forced by Republicans who wanted to continue debating her husband’s overseas fundraising activities.

The delay had the effect of denying Clinton a confirmation vote on Inauguration Day, when six other Cabinet members were approved. But Sen. John Cornyn (R-Texas), who sought the delay, praised Clinton’s abilities Wednesday and voted in favor. She was confirmed 94 to 2.

The only votes against her came from Sen. David Vitter (R-La.), who favored further restrictions on donations to Bill Clinton’s foundation, and Sen. Jim DeMint (R-S.C.), who cited concern about her support for abortion rights.

Man of the Schmear

From The Crypt at Politico:

Money can’t buy him love, but John McCain-backing Joe Lieberman is hoping a little cash will diffuse Democrats’ anger towards him — and help him keep his chairmanship of the Homeland Security and Public Works Committee.

After forking over $100,000 to the Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee last year, the Connecticut Democrat-turned-independent has written a second $100,000 check to DSCC Chairman Chuck Schumer in recent days, according to a people familiar with the situation.

Meltdown

From the Press-Register:

State and local emergency officials said they are looking into plans to provide ice following a hurricane after federal officials said earlier this year that they would no longer supply it.

FEMA head R. David Paulison surprised many coastal leaders when he announced in April that the agency would only distribute ice for medical emergencies or life-threatening situations.

The Federal Emergency Management Agency has traditionally provided ice to disaster victims, particularly in areas with power outages.

Leftovers

Since it is the day after Thanksgiving, and we are probably all recovering from our feeding orgies , I am serving leftovers tonight. I was going to title this DINO-sores. I made it after Michael Mukasey was confirmed as Attorney General.
