If you wake Republicans up to that fact, they'll fall into limbo and the US Senate will halt. The first mistake is to tell a coma patient that they're in a coma. The mistake they make is to follow you. Not because you're in charge but because you were first. And then it starts - The Nom goes too easily and like an incipient stall, the Dems win and the next thing we know Kerry is on his way to Tehran - again (whoosh). The idea was to convince them (the first time) that we were saving them the trouble not that they were trouble. And lastly, never tell a trouble maker that they're trouble.
