Bring It On
During the weekend, the press endlessly debated the Democratic proposal for a no-confidence vote on Fredo Gonzalez. Arlen Specter pretty much guaranteed that Fredo would step down if the proposal went forward.
Of course, no good deed goes unpunished. Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell threatened to block the "no confidence" vote.
Democrats say they're serious about holding the no-confidence vote, but it's not clear they will be able to make it happen. The Senate has a full plate this week, with the debate over immigration, and wrangling over the Iraq spending bill. In addition, Republican leader Mitch McConnell, R-Ky., indicated he'd be unlikely to let a simple no-confidence vote proceed.
"In the Senate, nobody gets a clear shot," he said.
You know what, bring it on, bitch! Mitch McConnell is up for re-election (as we might have mentioned here, once or twice) and if he wants to be known as the guy who saved Gonzalez, so be it. In fact, I double dog dare Mitch McConnell to take to the Senate floor to defend Gonzalez. I dare him to say that Gonzalez is doing a good job.
