From the AP:
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.

"They have repeatedly chosen to protect the Republican administration rather than get to the bottom of what happened and why," Democratic leader Harry Reid said.

Taken by surprise, Republicans derided the move as a political stunt.

"The United States Senate has been hijacked by the Democratic leadership," said Majority Leader Bill Frist. "They have no convictions, they have no principles, they have no ideas," the Republican leader said.

In a speech on the Senate floor, Reid demanded the Senate go into closed session. The public was ordered out of the chamber, the lights were dimmed, and the doors were closed. No vote is required in such circumstances.
What kind of idiotic blathering is that from Bill Frist? Blah, blah, blah, HIJACKED! Blah, blah, blah, NO PRINCIPLES! It's called opposition, dumbshit. I know it's been largely absent for the last five years but it's a very real and necessary thing considering the children running things on your side of the aisle.

UPDATE: I see Jim at AbeLog beat me to it. Ditto what he says
