More Than One Way to Skin an Obstructor

This is just hilarious, for all those who despair over Harry Reid's stewardship over the Senate, please take notice. For the first time in the history of the Senate, Reid has devised a way to turn the tables on ultra-wingnut obstructor Senator Coburn R-OK. Seems Coburn has been personally shutting down the Senate by objecting to a boatload of otherwise bi-partisan bills in an effort to make Reid deal with cloture votes on each one, thus tying up the Senate in countless procedural votes.

Well Reid is going to bring to the floor what he calls the Coburn Omnibus bill which will include all of the Coburn stalled bills into one vote. This is a regular practice for spending bills, but unique on those with holds by individual Senator's. Touche, Harry Reid, quite creative.
