On the Democrats' closed-door Senate stunt:
After Reid made his motion for a closed session Tuesday afternoon, the Senate reopened about two hours later after members agreed to appoint a bipartisan group of senators to assess the progress of the intelligence committee's investigation, the office of Majority Leader Bill Frist said.
The three Republicans and three Democrats are to report back to Senate leaders by November 14.
By my watch, we're past November 14. After seeing their own rabidly pro-war quotes come back to haunt them, maybe the Democrats just want to bury this issue.
