    The thought of default is so odious that McConnell has asked Boehner to do him the favor of bringing the debt ceiling to a vote without the "majority of the majority." It will pass and make Boehner look like he can run the House rationally in spite of the nuts he has to deal with in his caucus.

    Seeing this, the Senate Democrats will guess, wrongly of course, that the Republicans are at last going to behave themselves, consider the needs of the nation, and therefore, there will be no need to change the filibuster rules.

    McConnell will then, through the filibuster, once again control the Senate the way God intended.
