    Exactly right. A party in decline tends to let its most extremist kooks run the circus. Ted Cruz and James Inhofe are a disgrace to the Senate. At least John McCain and Lindsay Graham managed to act like adults at the end.

    There were two votes in the Senate yesterday: one for cloture and the second for approval.

    Rand Paul voted against cloture but for approval.

    Panetta and Napolitano were the best picks for the jobs. I am glad Napolitano is still in charge. She is a touch cookie.
