Democrats will finally get Medieval on their ...
From The Rachel Maddow Show:
"We can report exclusively tonight, that two major power brokers on the left have told MSNBC that they are encouraging a Senate strategy now, in which the leadership would revoke chairmanships and other leadership positions from any Democrat who sides with a Republican filibuster to block a vote on health reform."
"Regardless of how individual senators would vote ultimately on the bill, committee chairmen or subcommittee chairmen who allowed Republicans to force a 60-vote requirement for passing health care...under this type of strategy would be in danger of losing their chairmanships."
"That would be the Senate equivalent of busting a Lieutenant Colonel down to Private."
"This is cracking heads time in the Democratic Party right now. This is arm-twisting, vote-counting, "are you a real Dem" time for the proponents of health reform."
Excerpts from Daily Kos diary Maddow Blockbuster: "This is Cracking Heads Time"
Hopefully the President will finally kick a little ass.After he knocks the Democrats into shape he can start on the Republicans.I hope Rachel's right on this.
