    What a group of slime balls, this is outrageous helping BP get out of the mess it caused. How much $ are the Pubbies pocketing to cover BP's ass.

    The Plum Line - To subpoena BP or not to subpoena BP? That is the question

    On the Senate floor, Republican Jim DeMint blocked a move to bring up a Democrat-sponsored bill that would have granted subpoena power to the White House oil spill commission. A similar measure passed the House last week by a vote of 420-1.

    A spokesman for DeMint said the South Carolina senator himself does not object to giving the commission subpoena power, but was acting on behalf of "members of the Republican conference."
