As the Worm Turns
This would be funny if it were not so sick. The Democrats in '05 were EXPANDING the use of the filibuster to judicial nominees that they didn't like, but any thought that they ought not be able to use that expanded power was a "crisis".
Now they want to remove the power of the filibuster for a minority in the Senate fighting to prevent legislation from passing that the majority of Americans do not want to pass! But wait, now their views are completely opposite, even though in '05, they were on the side of EXPANSION of the filibuster, now they seek to essentially remove it, since any "important legislation" could just be "reconciled".
They give mendacity a bad name.
