Well, This Explains A Lot

Greg Sargent at TPM Election Central says that Reid Allowed Vote On Mukasey In Exchange For Military Funding Bill

According to sources inside and outside the Democratic leadership, Harry Reid allowed a vote on Mukasey because in exchange the Republican leadership agreed to allow a vote on the big Defense Appropriations Bill, which contains $459 billion in military spending but doesn’t fund the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan.

So Reid thought the only way he could get the Repubs to vote for a defense appropriations bill was by accepting a man who refused to admit that torture was wrong, and he staged a vote when all of the Senators from his party who were running for President were gone, so they wouldn’t filibuster.

Harry, you are an idiot. You screw over members of your own party to score meaningless points, and refuse to force the Repubs to expose themselves as jerks by having to actually filibuster bills. You are brain dead.

Not that I can see.
