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.

The mouthbreathing idiots who make up the Conservative Right in this country have decided to pressure Mitch McConnell to get rid of the filibuster.  And he's going to do it.

Please.  By all means.  Do it.

The Senate is unlikely to stay in Republican hands if they lurch much further to the right.  As it is, they will likely lose control of the chamber in 2016.  It was McConnell who pioneered the current abuse of the filibuster, so it would be ironic if he was the guy who got rid of it completely.

Please proceed, morons.
