If Joe won't go along with his caucus, then he needs no chairmanship, and let the chips fall where they may! Two cloture votes, and we can let him stay...for now!
On another note, I will have the cutest little penguin and the prettiest bumblebee on the block come Halloween night! I was relieved that Tweenie's costume is much more modest than it appeared in the catalog - no tank top necessary underneath (that was our deal!), and am just delighted that my Little Man still likes the idea of funny, cute animal costumes instead of creepy stuff. I know, I know, it's probably the last year I'll get that gift, but I am completely and utterly smitten by the innocence my little penguin still shows and the literal jumping for joy that her bumblebee costume brings.
Gotta go - time for the annual watching of "It's The Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown"! Enjoy your Halloween, be safe, and share your costumes here, fellow Politicos! I can't wait to hear what fun your 31st will bring!
