Preventing A Recess From Becoming An Abcess

Dr. James Holsinger recently resigned from the board of trustees of Asbury Theological Seminary in Wilmore, Ky., in expectation that when Congress heads out for its Thanksgiving recess, President Bush will appoint him as America's first openly-bigoted Surgeon General — he said that gay sex was "intuitively" unnatural, leads to "lacerations, perforations and death," and founded a church that "ministers to people who no longer wish to be gay or lesbian" (as if they had a choice) — but Sen. Harry Reid might just be the monkey in his wrench: Reid's announced that he might not actually adjourn the Senate for the holiday; that he might keep a skeleton force of senators and staff on call to show up every couple of days or so in what's called a "pro forma" session to keep Bush from making any recess appointments — which Bush had promised back in August not to do anyway. Folks may recall that past recess appointments have included John Bolton as ambassador to the United Nations, and both Charles Pickering and William Pryor to seats on 5th Circuit and 11th Circuit appellate benches — none of whom survived the required Senate confirmation votes.

I think we could call such a move a big "Fuck You" to Holsinger — and he certainly deserves it!
