    has power over its own rules.  So I'm guessing there would be extremely wide deference on rules questions as long as no one ends up in jail without trial.

    The point is that if the filibuster does go down on certain legislative matters there's no possible relief.  But in the Senate, unanimous consent could be withdrawn for quite some time by the aggrieved party.  So the Senate may have to start voting and debating the naming of Post Offices.
