"SCOTT BROWN TO BE SWORN IN EARLY"

The Republicans are eager to have their 41st Senator take his place. They said privately that seating Brown earlier could help them block Democratic nominees opposed by the GOP, specifically Craig Becker, whom President Obama has nominated to join the five-member National Labor Relations Board. It gives them enough votes to filibuster any nominee -- and they've shown a willingness to filibuster any nominee.

I say let them filibuster, actually filibuster, Becker's nomination.. Think of the picture - Republicans droning on and on, holding up Senate business, in order to keep a labor representative from serving on the National Labor Relations Board.
