Does Harry Reid = Sonny Corleone?

Harry's going to the mattresses already.

Frustrated that Republicans won't allow a straight up-or-down vote on their proposal to withdraw troops from Iraq in the next 120 days, Senate Democrats announced Monday that they will insist that Republicans wage their filibuster the old-fashioned way -- through the night.

Democratic leaders say they will keep senators working all night Tuesday, forcing them to explain their stance on the war.

"We're going to have votes during the night," said Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-Nev.). "We're not going to let everybody go home and get some rest."

...

To dramatize their determination, Democrats plan to bring dozens of cots into hallways around the Senate.
So who's Clemenza? Who's Tessio?

Added: CLEMENZA: "That Sonny's runnin' wild. He's thinkin'a going to the mattresses already. We gotta find a spot over on the West Side. Ya try -- 309 West 43rd Street. You know any gooda spots on the West Side?"
