    But he'd have to make an entirely different motion than he made tonight, at least at the outset. The only similarity between this and the "nuclear option" we've become familiar with is that it ends with an overruling of the chair.

    That's like saying that a traffic ticket and a capital murder charge are the same because they can both be resolved in court.
