    Outlet after outlet - for now - sees pretty clearly that this measure had to be taken because of relentless Republican roadblocks. The Mighty Republican Wurlitzer will have lots of time and money to pump out the Butthurt Blues, but at least today nobody's having it, and some of the reporting is even going so far as to say this is long overdue and may be too little.

    I'm going to say the window of opportunity to use this development to good effect. Start confirming nominees, Democrats. This won't last long. Get some positions filled, and remember to say "elections have consequences" and "the American people spoke last year, we're carrying out the will of the people" every time you hear the opening chords of the Butthurt Blues.
