This is a joke, right?

I hate to quote the Daily Kos again, but, this is just really silly.

Reid says the fight over Senate rules and the filibuster is the "most important" issue he has worked on. "There have always been filibusters. If they do this, it will change our basic framework," he said. "It will make the Senate an extension of the House of Representatives. "I will never give up the right for extended debate," Reid said. "I’d rather they try the nuclear option and show what a real abuse of power is." (emphasis from Armando posting at Kos)

The "most important issue he has worked on." Doesn’t say much for the leader of the Senate Democrats, does it? Preserving their power and obstructing Senate business. That really is all they have. How about working towards a plan for Social Security reform? Tax reform? Energy or the Environment? Anything? I guess that Reid is taking the John Kerry approach, ie, recommend little to no legislation.

    Yes, that IS all they have. Incredible that people still vote for them, isn’t it?

    If they kill the filibuster you’ll be sorry later on…

    . . . . and I will say, “Told you so!” The knife cuts both ways.

    I must say I can think of a million more important issues they could be working on. Great post!

    As far as the knife cutting both ways…if the liberals continue their looniness and catering to the far left…nobody’s got to worry about that.

  5. I would like to see the filibuster gone, no matter what. Here is my simple plan. Bring someone to the Senate floor. Give every Senator 5 minutes to yap away, no exceptions. Then vote. They have plenty of time to use the press and the ‘net to do their thing.

    A vote, up or down! That’s they key.
