Time to go to the mat for the Webb amendment

No more screwing around. If the Republicans want to filibuster let them filibuster...
    If the Republicans want to filibuster, fine. Don't pull the amendment. Just let them keep filibustering. As long as the amendment is on the floor, there can be no vote on the bill itself. Keep calling cloture votes, one per day. After a few days, start asking how long the Republicans intend to withhold money to fund troops in the field in order to pursue their petty partisan agenda.
Atrios has the list of Republican Senators to call tomorrow.

I sure hope that vote goes better than the habeas vote did.

I can't believe that worm John Warner voted against it.
