JJ of Unrepentant Old Hippie found this Chris Matthews video interview between a rabid anti-gays in military and a gay ex-soldier:

So you know just who is preventing the government from functioning... and thinking it's great fun:

Sen. Richard Shelby (R-AL) has put an extraordinary "blanket hold" on at least 70 nominations President Obama has sent to the Senate, CongressDaily (sub. req.) reports. The hold means no nominations can move forward unless Senate Democrats can secure a 60-member cloture vote to break it, or until Shelby lifts the hold.

"While holds are frequent," CongressDaily reports, "Senate aides said a blanket hold represents a far more aggressive use of the power than is normal."

The party of 'Country First' my ass.

I favor a blanket hold. Hold it over Shelby's mouth and nose; press until he stops complaining.

I'd apologize for being so rude, but I'm losing my patience with these barstids. Blanket holds for all of 'em!

(You're not being rude, Steve, you're being emphatic.) Rudeness is when it's undeserved.
