    There's nothing worse than having to go to work with grumpy people who are angry with you because you won't let them have their way with you. Nothing: not the malfunctioning of government; not the damage done to one's own party. Anyway, think of what a great narrative it will be when a Republican majority kills the filibuster.

    Why, that will be sternly-worded dry powder for decades!

    Actual Democrats: the surest, quickest, route to More Democrats. And actually addressing our various emergencies.

      next time they're up for re-election, they may finally get the message that voters are fed up with dysfunctional government.  When things get bad enough, voters strike out at all incumbents.

      If cutting Social Security & Medicare benefits for low income seniors is what Democrats do after they win a budget standoff, I'd hate to see what they do after they lose one.

        Watch what happens around here when you suggest NOT voting for an insufficiently liberal Democrat who has sold Democratic principles away too many times.
