''Let's Hear It For the Women Senators''

"Along with my senator, Maria Cantwell, who's armed and set to do battle against that farty ol' gusty gut wheezer Ted Stevens tomorrow, there's Sen. Barbara Boxer (D-Calif) who has consulted "four presidential scholars for their opinion on former White House Counsel John Dean's statement that President Bush admitted to an 'impeachable offense' when he said he authorized the National Security Agency to spy on Americans without getting a warrant from a judge." (More about Boxer and the dimwitted but diabolical doofus dauphin below the fold.)
You'll want to be sure to turn on C-Span2 tomorrow. Maria Cantwell is leading a furious, gritty group of Democratic senators -- including Sen. Russ Feingold -- against Sen. Ted Stevens and Sen. Bill Frist -- or, as I'll call them hereafter Crank and Wank.

Maria vows to lead a filibuster against the inclusion of funding for ANWR drilling in the defense bill: "Sen. Maria Cantwell vowed Monday to keep the Senate in session until the brink of Christmas to defeat legislation that would open the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge to oil drilling." (Seattle P.I., D.C. bureau) In a floor speech Monday, Maria Cantwell took the Republicans head on.-Excerpted from Susan Hu's post on Booman Tribune.
