  • OH JESUS CHRIST: Here's a problem with the latest, well-meaning Democratic push to try and pin Republicans (correctly) as pure power-hungry obstructionists who care about nothing and ruin everything: NO ONE UNDERSTANDS PROCEDURE. "Asked how many GOP senators voted for the chamber's health care bill on Dec. 24, only 32% know that the measure received no support from Republican members... A smaller percentage (26%) knows that 60 votes are needed to break a filibuster in the Senate. About as many (25%) mistakenly say that a simple majority of 51 votes can break a filibuster." So the next Serious Centrist Democratic senator who whines about how scary it would be to use reconciliation for a handful of fixes to the health care bill should do one thing or another with a bag of dicks.

It made loads of sense! And then things got ... less so.
