    That asshole cares to much about his precious guns to let any gun bill pass by 51 votes. He is too much of a fucking asshole to actually care about anything that he is not paid to care about.

      change the filibuster rules - now I know.  Harry is afraid that an assault weapons ban might pass with 51 votes, and we can't let that happen, now can we? Democrats need to seriously consider primarying Reid and any other enabling Democrat, who are letting the Rethugs get away with their obstructionist games in the Senate. I know the rationale for not changing the filibuster - it may come back to haunt Democrats in the future when we are in the minority etc., but we have to think about what is happening right now and deal with it, instead of worrying about what MIGHT happen in the future.
