That’s Right

As penance for ignoring the blog for over a week and as a reward for reaching the halfway mark on the tedious project I’m working on, the robot presents for your viewing pleasure the lovely and talented Cheryl Cole Tweedy.

Now quit looking at me like that.

When I was playing the Need for Speed games, Brooke Burke happened to be one of the celebrities they embedded into one of the games. Lucky me.

Now, lucky you.

As usual, click to embiggify.

UPDATE: DREAM Act defeated with not enough support 55Y-41N. Russ has the roll call. Looks like some of the Dems are starting to see the light, or at least want to save their skins.

Swiped in full from  Russ’s place:

Twitter is saying the vote is scheduled for 10:30 this morning but I can’t confirm that. The hastag is #DREAM to follow the conversation.
Here’s C-Span’s link if you want to watch online.
From Kaus’ piece linked by Allah:
You’ve heard of “comprehensive” reform? DREAM is non-comprehensive reform. It doesn’t even have the basic enforcement provisions—employer sanctions and fancy new ID cards—that were part of the earlier, failed “comprehensive” bargain, which wasn’t a very good bargain (in part because nobody was sure the enforcement schemes wouldn’t be immediately undermined by lawsuits from the same organizations who supported “comprehensive” reform). DREAM is all amnesty, no prevention. Maybe that’s because its backers care about amnesty but not prevention.
This is a disaster of epic proportions just waiting to explode.
We beat back the Omnibus. Let’s beat back this nightmare.
