Krusty Konservative: Spartans!

Excerpted from this post at Krusty Konservative
By Christopher Rants
... House Republican felt a bit like the 300 Spartans this week. We knew we were vastly outnumbered but knew we had an ideal worth fighting for - freedom. Make no mistake that is what is at stake in this vote to force non-union workers to pay dues or fees. ... Republicans prepared for battle as the Spartans. We stocked our offices for the siege about to begin. Extra clothes, food, caffeine... We were (and still are) prepared to debate around the clock. The press reports that we filed over 150 amendments to block this bill are true. But I dispute that there is anything frivolous about them. There is nothing frivolous about defending people's freedom and liberty. ... At 4:30 the Democrats pulled the plug on debate for the day and adjourned for the week. Before anyone declares victory let me tell you this is far from over. Republicans didn't have a victory party afterwards, we had another strategy session.
