Waaaah! Snowe & Collins whine about Reid

Snowe & Collins criticize Reid's closed-session move as partisan, theatrical, diversionary and - horrors! - disorderly. Says Snowe:

The Senate could have come together in an orderly fashion to address the issues raised by the minority through a deliberative process working with Senate leadership.

You know, she's right. They could have. In an alternate universe, that is, in which George W. Bush is still a failed businessman in Texas, Dr. Frist is still killing cats back in Tennessee, and Democrats represent the people of Maine in the United States Senate.

UPDATE: As usual, Fafblog puts it better:

Oh how Giblets longs for the good old days of seven months ago, when the stately Bill Frist held court over an emergency session to prolong the life of the famously vegetative, or when the august Rick Santorum compared gay marriage to terrorism on the Senate floor! Instead we must endure the pernicious and terrible tricks of Harry Reid, Mormon from Hell, as he hijacks America's upper house in some petty quest for Congressional oversight! Giblets just doesn't know if he can ever trust him again. Giblets is a Frist man from now on! Next week Giblets is given to understand the majority leader will restore the dignity of the legislature by dressing up in a giant fetus costume and jumping through a hoop of fire in the Capitol rotunda.
