      The mere fact that he thinks anyone will believe that he's serious about it now shows that he's delusional.  The only thing he's doing is embarrassing himself.  If he had any sense whatsoever, he's just shut up and pretend that everything is better.

          No one on the right or the left believes him.  If he's so self-aware, why is he so busy flushing his credibility down the toilet?  

          I could buy into the notion that he's getting exactly what he wants, except for the fact that he's so bad at it.  Surely a reasonably competent majority leader could figure out a way to preserve the filibuster without looking like a complete nincompoop.

            And I bet he gets more $ than Roberto Benigni, who is infinitely more talented.
