Are They Getting Tired?

The Senate voted tonight to confirm President Trump's nominees for both Secretary of the Treasury and Secretary of Veterans Affairs.  The vote for Treasury was 53 to 47.  As usual, almost every Democrat voted no.  Then came Veterans Affairs.  There, something wild happened.  The vote was 100 to 0.  It was as if the Democrats finally gave up.  It looks like they just couldn't take another all night delay session.

Maybe they're just getting tired of losing vote after vote.

I'm sure after a bit of rest, they will go back to their non-stop delaying tactics.  It was all they had; they won't give it up this easily.
