Lame Duck Indeed: Join the Live Chat

[cnn-photo-caption image=http://i2.cdn.turner.com/cnn/2009/images/01/02/liveblogfinal.copy.jpg]

We have breaking news from Capitol Hill, where the Senate has failed to pass a major piece of legislation.  We're Keeping them Honest. Are they playing games instead of doing actual work? Plus, a new report on war on Afghanistan. Does it paint a true picture? We'll talk with Peter Bergen who just returned from the country and Sebastian Junger who who spent a year embedded with troops there.

Scroll down to join the live chat during the program. It's your chance to share your thoughts on tonight's headlines. Keep in mind, you have a better chance of having your comment get past our moderators if you follow our rules.

Here are some of them:

1) Keep it short (we don't have time to read a "book")
2) Don't write in ALL CAPS (there's no need to yell)
3) Use your real name (first name only is fine)
4) No links
5) Watch your language (keep it G-rated; PG at worst - and that includes $#&*)

    Thank you Anderson & Team 360 for a really diverse show tonight. Good night as well.

    Good night fellow writers. I wish everyone a safe & peaceful day tomorrow and always.

    Loved LKL last show, Clinton was great, as were Bill Mahr and so many other. Katie Curic's poem was fantastic (i would love a copy).
    I'm really, really going to miss him! As will so many.
    I hope you get to the after party...

    Thank you Anderson for coverage on Afghanistan.
    I hope the Congress makes progress on repeal of DADT tomorrow.
    I hope the Congress gets real on the gaping hole on deficit and sets aside taxbreak for the rich, cans the extension of taxbreak on inheritance, and passes the stupid BUDGET with much needed unemployment extension for the poor just before christmas. Yes, they are expecting Santa in their humble homes, you hear that Sen.DeMint?

    Goodnight Anderson, all.

    Think I have woken up my neighbours with my laughter about the 'kackel dackel'
    Thanks for that!
    (Would have liked to hear Karin from Berlin reaction)

    Anderson, Vick should never be allowed to own an animal of any kind!

    Liked the "Psycho" comparison.

    The closest Vick should get to a dog is the fake dog with the fake poop and get him some goldfish crackers to go with it!

  22. Emily

    Has PETA or anyone from the Humane Soc. had anything to say about Vick?

    December 16, 2010 at 10:54 pm |
  23. molly

    I did not need to see that German toy in action!

  24. tanya

    Way to go Anderson!!! I am with you I do not think that Michael Vick should be able to get a dog..... at least not now!!! it is wayyyyy too soon. I like you do believe in rehabilitation but geezz

    Larry's kids are so cute and funny.

    Michael Vick OWes Dogdom a Big price for what he did!
    Even though the Humane Soc. supports this idea, i don't think most of us (dog people) agree with them.
    You're absolutely right Anderson, a kakle dakle (sp) might just be the right move.!

  27. Sharon Hastings

    He said he wants a dog "in the future". Later when appropriate let him rescue a dog that needs a home and take good care of it. He wants one for his children and family. Woof woof.

    cackle! dackle!!!

    mr vick should get himself a goldfish – skip the dog

    Anderson, forgiveness is the key here. "I vote the man have a family dog!" We all are watching you, Vick!

    Real Information is essential to any democracy. Afghanistan has difficult terrain and not much population. Development of some kind of media that can bring information home is essential.

  32. Samantha Rowley - Nashville, TN

    Michael Vick certainly belongs to the Ridiculist for wanting another dog. Answer: NO! Not sure he's over his issues just yet. Hey, what about a stuffed toy dog?

    December 16, 2010 at 10:51 pm |
  33. Lori

    I like the cracker idea Anderson!

    December 16, 2010 at 10:51 pm |

    I think he's just interested in his image.
