Bye Bye Recess Appointments

Harry Reid brilliantly devised a way to stop President Bush from sneaking wingnut nominees through when the Senate is not in session.

We hear that over the long August vacation, when those types of summer hires are made, Reid will call the Senate into session just long enough to force the prez to send his nominees who need confirmation to the chamber. The talk is he will hold a quickie “pro forma” session every 10 days, tapping a local senator to run the hall. Senate workers and Republicans are miffed, but Reid is proving that he’s the new sheriff in town.
