God Rest Ye, Merry Gentlemen - Jars of Clay - listen now

Oh dear Lord, can you imagine the caterwauling and screeching that went on behind those closed doors?
WASHINGTON — The U.S. Senate returned to its daily work late Tuesday after Democrats enacted a rare parliamentary rule forcing a private session of the chamber so senators could speak in secret about the lead-up to the war in Iraq.

As a result of the session, in which Senate Intelligence Committee Chairman Pat Roberts and the panel's Ranking Democrat Jay Rockefeller sparred for 40 minutes about whether Republicans had failed in their oversight of the Bush administration, lawmakers set Nov. 14 as a deadline for six members of the Senate — three from each party — to assess the progress of the committee's investigation into pre-Iraq war intelligence.
I bet the Republicans felt like a weary traveler trapped in an airplane at 35,000 feet - in coach - next to a squalling infant. Gads, the pain, the pain.
