From the "What Else Is New?" Dep't.

Immigration Bill Suffers Setback
The Senate fell 14 votes short of the 60 needed to end debate on immigration overhaul, dealing a near-fatal blow to the landmark bill and one that could very well dash President Bush's hopes of ever achieving this goal before leaving the White House. The 46-53 roll call evolved into a blowout as a strong majority of Republicans sought cover and lined up against the administration once the outcome became apparent.
As if we didn't expect this. There were things in this bill that bothered me. I wasn't a big fan. Maybe when we get a real Democratic Congress, they can pull a new and improved version off.

Is anyone else feeling that the main course on the White House menu these days is lame duck?
