    Crazy enough to demand cloture with this high visibility, potential default days away, and an entire nation gobsmacked by the dysfunction.

    I hope.

    •  Is McChinless the only one who can demand cloture? (2+ / 0-)

      Can't a Rand Paul or Jim DeMint call for such a vote?  Even with Mitchie's support for a Reid bill, I'm not sure that there aren't 41 Republican votes for a filibuster.  (Especially with what they perceive as the battle for the Majority Leader's position after 2012 -- for "Bohner" and "Cantor," substitute "McConnell" and "DeMint," and you get the picture.)

    •  That puts the Senate GOP (2+ / 0-)

      at complete war with the House GOP.
