I remember everyone just seemed so incredibly worried about him actually making it, and then he got thrashed in the polls.

Yep, because we all know IRAN is entirely behind the current tension... Nothing to do with a Giant Ass in the White House, his absolute hatred of the previous President, and his warmongering advisors who REALLY, REALLY, REALLY want war...

And when exactly did Richard Nixon come back from the dead to join the Dems?

So, a few months later, can we all laugh that Sargon managed to make it all the way to the final votes... And got trashed so badly that it has likely permanently damaged the UKIP?  Not that it means the end of Brexit morons, as Nigel simply created a new "Brexit Party", and most of UKIP's supporters switched to that...

Politics and Government / Re: 7th level WTF moments in Oregon

I have to wonder exactly where that quorum is specified.

Because US Senate Republicans already set the precedent for suspending quorum rules, at least in committee, when Democrats were stalling some of Trump's Cabinet nominees by voting to suspend quorum rules (one of the few things you can do without a quorum), and then advancing the nominees out of committee. Can't do that on the floor, though, I think.

From my understanding, the Oregon state constitution states what is required for a quorum, which requires two more members than all the Dems.  The US Constitution states that a quorum is required for passing laws, but doesn't define how many Senators make up a quorum, so the Senate can define a quorum as whatever they want.

My bet is that this is one of those, wait a period of time until everyone has moved on and then continue posting like nothing has happened kind of deals.

That isn’t a bet as much as it’s a given
