Sessions' repetition seemed like piling on. What was the point? Was he trying to catch Sotomayor in a contradiction? To gain an admission? To score points back home?
Many Senators referred to Paul as "The Conscience of the Senate." Only 5 feet 4 inches tall and with a severe limp, Wellstone would stand on the floor of the Senate and rail against corporate interests.
Why are Democrats letting Senator Sessions set the agenda with empty, irrelevant, "build the fence bigger" immigration amendments?
Al Franken in the Senate and the Democrats' now-60 seat majority, we thought we'd take this opportunity to sort through the differences between Democratic factions as the Obama revolution gets underway.
Throughout your campaign and its aftermath, you went out of your way to not be funny -- please free your sense of humor from whatever black site it's been languishing in for the last two years.
We can't help but weigh in on the Sarah Palin epic disaster movie. It's a fantastic train wreck of a story, and we can't look away.
No, I am not moving to Connecticut to run against Joe Lieberman. I am sure that Democratic Party leaders in that state will take care of themselves.
Alaska Gov. Palin resigns, suggesting the media won't have Sarah to kick around any more. That's what you think, Sarah. Meanwhile tweets she's gone ...
As harsh as this may seem, maybe it is time for Ted Kennedy to resign from the Senate and let the Democratic Governor of Massachusetts appoint a healthy successor.
The GOP's Runnin' Off the Rails tour continued this week with Sarah Palin announcing she will resign, Mark Sanford admitting he "crossed lines" with multiple women (while providing an instant new slang term for sex: "crossing the ultimate line"), James Inhofe welcoming Al Franken to the Senate by saying, "We are going to get the clown from Minnesota," and John Boehner spending an hour on the House floor reading aloud portions of the landmark climate-change bill he labeled "a piece of shit." Also this week, U.S. troops in Iraq were finally cause for celebration, fireworks, and dancing in the streets of Baghdad. It turns out it was not our arrival in Iraq that was greeted with flowers and sweets but our departure. It's an agonizing lesson learned six years, $1 trillion, and 4,321 U.S. deaths too late.
What separates humans from animals can be summed up as one simple thing -- the mastery of fire. Even "using tools" doesn't cut it anymore, as apes ha...
Here's my look at this wild week: An index of people, places, things and why you should care about them.
Well the "Land of 10,000 Lakes" took what seemed like 10,000 years, but the Minnesota Supreme Court finally ruled yesterday in a unanimous decision to certify Al Franken's election victory.
What keeps Democrats from accessing their inner Tom DeLay and ramming effective bills through when they clearly have the power to do so? They've got a bug. It's called bipartisanship.
Susan Collins and Olympia Snowe lost a huge amount of power yesterday. The battle to get to 60 votes was focused primarily on them, but now the focus will be on moderate Democrats rather than moderate Republicans.
Will Andy Samberg be the first politician to run for U.S. Senator armed with an array of provocative digital shorts starring him and Justin Timberlake?
