Snark Amendment: Reporter Snark about "Friends of Hamas" Becomes GOP Talking Point
Snark Amendment: Chuck Hagel on the Hot Seat Vs. GOP Senators
The Senate on Tuesday voted to confirm Chuck Hagel to become the next Secretary of Defense, just hours after the upper chamber of Congress broke the Republican-led filibuster of Hagel’s nomination.
The final vote was 58-41. Four Republicans joined the Democrats in voting for Hagel: Sens. Mike Johanns (NE), Thad Cochran (MS), Richard Shelby (AL), and in a surprise move, Rand Paul (KY), who voted against cloture earlier today. Eighteen Republicans supported the cloture motion to bring about the up-or-down vote this afternoon.

Chuck Hagel may be SecDef, but Lindsey Graham is still an idiot.— Highly scatological (@RaisingOneBrow) February 27, 2013
If Hagel can b confirmed as bad & hateful as he is, the GOP senators have just told the world that they are USELESS and have NO BALLS. #tcot— Ali in So. Cali (@Ali_in_So_Cali) February 27, 2013
