    "That's a shame—and it's a shame that a handful of Democrats agreed with them when Democrats had the chance to reform the filibuster in January."

    Don't blame the Republicans for the filibuster nonsense!  With a Majority Leader of the caliber of LBJ, for example, or Tip O'Neal in the House, the Democrats would have clipped the Republicans' wings in short order.  The Republicans are only seeing how far Harry Reid will let them push the outside of the envelope.  Nothing wrong with that!
