Blog Credo

The whole aim of practical politics is to keep the populace alarmed (and hence clamorous to be led to safety) by menacing it with an endless series of hobgoblins, all of them imaginary.

Harry Reid Is From Nevada, He Knows Nuclear

So the Senate just invoked the "nuclear option" to end filibusters of judicial nominees.

I realize that this could lead to problems should the GOP regain the White House or the Senate.

But I think it was pretty obvious that if that DID happen, the GOP would, itself, invoke the nuclear option.  Providing, of course, that the Democrats engaged in the unprecedented obstruction of otherwise qualified nominees.

If anything, it puts the focus where it should be: elections have consequences for the Courts.  So vote, people.
