    They'll have some lame excuse, like "I couldn't get 60 Senators to agree to the change." Just watch!

    Democrats, you get to vote to keep the filibuster if you are prepared to use it. Where were you all on DOMA? Where were you all on the authorization of force in Iraq? What about MDAA? Torture? Spying on Americans? Indefinite detention? Gutting Social Security? (Oh, yeah. That one hasn't happened yet. It's in the works for this spring.)

    Is there a single one of my rights you ever defended with a filibuster?

    I don't want to hear or see a single one of you defending Harry Reid if he caves in on this. If there were ever a vote that determines whether you are for democracy or against it, this is the one.
