Threats from Sen. Mitch McConnell

by Mary

Mitch McConnell is the new minority leader for the Republicans. Evidently he got this role because he plays bully well. He's now threatening to not cooperate with the Democrats unless Bush's terrible judicial appointments are brought to the floor for a vote.

Sen. Mitch McConnell of Kentucky, who will become minority leader Jan. 4, told the conservative Federalist Society Friday not to feel bad about the Senate election results because Republicans will hold 49 seats in a body that requires 60 votes to end a filibuster and bring legislation or presidential nominees to a final vote.

If the "Democrats want our cooperation, they'll give the president's judicial nominees an up-or-down vote," McConnell said.

Evidently the Republicans are ready to rumble. Bring it on, I say.
