Crash and burn

Apparently the Senate's phone system has crashed from all the calls from angry citizens.   And the immigration bill will too shortly.

UPDATE:  At 11:23 the immigration bill failed on a cloture vote with only 46 votes -- 53 against.  I can't help but believe that Sen Voinovich's performance on Sean Hannity's show yesterday was the final nail in the bill's coffin.   It's an especially odd call since he ended up voting against the bill in the end.
