Like little stars.
The Senate narrowly averted a showdown over the filibuster this week, with Democrats and Republicans striking a last-minute deal to confirm key Obama Administration appointees and avoid the need for the Dems to go through with their threat to use the nuclear option. But some Republicans, like Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell, were reportedly very unhappy with the deal, negotiated by Sens. John McCain and Bob Corker, and things got a bit heated at a caucus meeting on Wednesday.
Roll Call reports:
McConnell’s tone, according to multiple sources, implied that he had been kept in the dark about the talks between some in his own ranks and Democrats. However, those same Republicans say they kept McConnell updated throughout their negotiating process.
Sen. Bob Corker, R-Tenn., got so frustrated with McConnell’s presentation of events, that he called “bullshit” loud enough for the room to hear, nearly a half-dozen sources said. The heated exchange underscored the “buyer’s remorse” among some Republicans, especially leaders, one senior Republican said on background.

Like little stars.
World's best pie apple. Essential for Tarte Tatin. Has five prominent ribs.
So pretty. So early. So ephemeral. Tastes like strawberry candy (slightly).
My personal fave. Ultra-crisp. Graham cracker flavor. Should be famous. Isn't.
High flavored with notes of blood orange and allspice. Very rare.
Jefferson's favorite. The best all-purpose American apple.
Makes the best hard cider in America. Soon to be famous.
Ben Franklin's favorite. Queen Victoria's favorite. Only apple native to NYC.
Really does taste like pineapple.
