The Filibuster Lives! --- Updated

I know that Thanksgiving has passed but today is another day of thanks for conservatives, Republicans, and anyone else fearful of unchecked Democrats running roughshod over Washington beginning in January 2009.  

Thanks today go out to voters in Georgia who re-elected Republican Saxby Chambliss by a wide margin ensuring that no matter how many votes Al Franken "finds" in Minnesota, Democrats will not have a filibuster-proof sixty seat majority.

Wednesday afternoon update:  Just who does Senator Chambliss credit for his big win?  Sarah Palin, who flew in and campaigned around Georgia on his behalf Monday.  According to Chambliss, Palin "is a dynamic lady, a great administrator, and I think she's got a great future in the Republican Party."

Sounds to me like Chambliss will be standing in line, behind me, to offer his endorsement when Palin announces her 2012 candidacy for president.  Who else will be in that line when it does finally form?
