Dictionary Time

Does anyone in the MSM have access to a dictionary? Seriously. They just don't get it.

Take, for example, the GOP blocking a cloture vote in the Senate. (Powerline has a nice, concise recap of the whole mess on the Senate floor yesterday.) The MSM (and the Dems in the Senate) said that the GOP was "blocking debate on the Iraqi surge." huh?

Quickly, let's go to the dictionary.
cloture: (noun) a method of closing a debate and causing an immediate vote to be taken on the question.
Let me see if I can explain this so that even the pointy-heads out there can understand it. The Democratic majority in the Senate wanted to push through the nonbinding resolution condeming the President's troup surge plan in Iraq. They didn't want to talk about alternative resolutions put forward by the GOP and even some Dems suffering from temporary sanity. The GOP blocked the cloture motion - they stopped the Dems from blocking debate on alternative resolutions. It's exactly the opposite of what the MSM and the Dems were saying (go figure).

No, I'm not surprised. And I'm not surprised that the mindless sheeple of this country numbly listen to and believe what they're told. I'm just annoyed by it.
