Time’s Jay Newton-Small on the latest Jim Bunning news:

Roll Call reports that Dems are lining up a series of senators who will attempt to move for a vote on the bill all night long, forcing Bunning to be present in the chamber to physically voice his objection to prevent a vote. It’s unclear if the handful of Republicans who’ve spoken out on Bunning’s behalf — Sam Brownback, Jon Kyl, Jim DeMint and John Cornyn — will help him sustain his block on the bill.

Later she tweets:

Bunning has placed a hold on all nominations, Reid’s office tells me.

Is this guy God’s gift to Democrats, or what? If he didn’t exist, we’d have to invent him. It’s like Dr. Strangelove except it’s about Senate procedure instead of nuclear war.
