Desperate Dems Hijack Senate

Apparently frustrated that a two-year special counsel investigation resulted in no meaningful indictments and failed even to determine that any law had been broken in the Plame Affair, Democratic senators have flown into a snit and invoked a little-used rule allowing them to force the Senate into closed session. This has all the trappings of a political ploy to retake headlines following the nomination of Samuel Alito to the Supreme Court.

From the Associated Press via Yahoo!News:
WASHINGTON - Democrats forced the Republican-controlled Senate into an unusual closed session Tuesday, questioning intelligence that President Bush used in the run-up to the war in Iraq and accusing Republicans of ignoring the issue.
Majority leader Bill Frist summed matters up quite accurately and succinctly:
"The United States Senate has been hijacked by the Democratic leadership. They have no convictions, they have no principles, they have no ideas."
