    I wonder why I follow politics.

    It makes wrestling seem unpredictable, yet has all the tragedy of real life.

      With wrestling either the matches have to be good or the plots have to be good.  Too often neither are... which I guess is true for the political side, too.

      On an unrelated note McConnell's worst case plan all along was to (if nothing else) tell his guys to back down as some great display of comity now would placate Reid enough to allow another year or more of filibustering everyone without penalty.  Sure, he probably figured he could outmaneuver Reid like always, but a cave here to "save the Senate" would get him enough good will to last through the next elections.  

      War doesn't determine who is right, only who is left. Better be left so you can determine later if you were right.
