    Reid's previous behavior makes me doubt that he is really serious about reform and I doubt that all of the Dems will vote for it either.

    Reid keeps showing up for a gun fight with a knife, talks about "gentleman's agreements", and then whines about they lied and their "obstructionism."

    Too many Dems whine about GOP obstructionism while stuffing lobbyist cash in their pockets! The repugs give them cover.

    I've called my reps, signed the petitions and I'll keep badgering them but I really don't think it will do any good. I'm sick of the kabuki dance.

    •  I don't CARE whether Harry Red is serious or not! (3+ / 0-)

      I care about an undemocratic load (filibuster) is loaded upon an undemocratic body, the senate.

      It's preposterous to have a minority of a minority determining policy in the US. The senate was set up as an undemocratic body but the gobstoppingly, mind-numbing assault on our government. The more of that crap that is lifted from our government, the better.

      I'm willing to accept that future Republicans will abuse the lack of filibuster in some future for the permanent increase of democracy in our country.

      Screw the filibuster but Harry Reid is a weak vessel for our hopes.

      What stronger breast-plate than a heart untainted! Thrice is he arm'd, that hath his quarrel just; And he but naked, though lock'd up in steel, Whose conscience with injustice is corrupted. King Henry, scene ii
