That is, if you consider 55 Republicans and 1 Democrat a bipartisan majority. The roll call is in...and the rat finks are:

55 Republican Senators
1 Ben Nelson of Nebraska
1 Jim Jeffords of Vermont who declined to vote despite deciding not to run for re-election and therefore having nothing to lose from opposing Brown.

Apparently, a proclivity towards statements of grand hyperbole does not disqualify someone from the bench in Nelson's book.

Speaking of going nucleur, the Democrats got absolutely hosed on this fillibuster "compromise." The Republicans gave up nothing. The Democrats got nothing but caved on fillibustering these lunatic jidges. They should have just forced a confrontation and let the Republicans blow the damn thing up.

We'd be in the same position now, but the country would have seen what rabid, frothing-at-the-mouth Republican power lust looks like.
