So, they can’t–make that won’t–get it together to provide funding for the troops, but they’re going to pretend to work over the weekend in order to stomp their feet over Democrat appointments. My four-year-old is more mature than Harry Reid:

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, D-Nev., will keep the U.S. Senate in session over the Thanksgiving break because he wants to block President Bush from making any recess appointments.

Roll Call is reporting that Sen. Reid inserted a statement into the record Friday stating that he will “hold the Senate in a series of pro forma or nonvoting sessions” to prevent Bush from exercising his appointment power.

Reid said, “While an election year looms, significant progress can still be made on nominations. I am committed to making that progress if the President will meet me halfway.

“But that progress can’t be made if the President seeks controversial recess appointments and fails to make Democratic appointments to important commissions.

The elevator is going down, down, down.
