Franken shuts down Lieberman on Senate floor
Franken was presiding over the Senate Thursday afternoon as Lieberman spoke about amendments he planned to offer to the bill. Lieberman asked for an additional moment to finish — a routine request — but Franken refused to grant the time.
“In my capacity as the senator from Minnesota, I object,” Franken said.
“Really?” said Lieberman. “OK.”
Red State has it on video:
While Franken’s spokesperson said time limits were strictly enforced due to the urgency of the bill, Michelle Malkin noticed that
Harry Reid is nearly an hour late to the Senate floor to make a motion to adjourn.
After he got there, Harry blamed the Republicans.
Well, at least Harry didn’t blame Lieberman.
