The Railroad Job Continues

Senate votes cloture on Amnesty Bill, meaning it is still on the fast track. Keep calling, there is still time. Allah channels John Fogerty:

That means debate on the motion to proceed is over and debate on the bill itself can begin. Why do that when most senators haven’t even read the bill yet? Because, silly, they want to get it passed before people realize what’s in it and fully how awful it is. Like Captain Ed says, they waited 21 years to do something about illegal immigration — and now they can’t wait three weeks more? Flagrantly, arrogantly antidemocratic; in Jeff Sessions’s words, “a railroad job.”

Kennedy and McCain had been hoping to ram it through the Senate by Memorial Day but now Reid, who has his own problems with the bill, is saying that’s a bad idea and it’ll take at least until early June. In any case, note well the vote total: they missed a filibuster that would have put off the start of debate until everyone had a chance to study the bill by 18 votes. That’s a bad moon rising.
