  •  The great irony here is the even with 55 (0+ / 0-)
    As the new filibuster figure, let's say, Democrats will be lucky to have 52 seats after the bloodbath in November.  So we STILL won't be able to pass anything without groveling before Snowe and Collins and whoever the hell else. We can kiss Delaware, Pennsylvania, Arkansas, North Dakota, Nevada and Colorado goodbye right now with Illinois possible.  Then when the GOP regains control in 2012, they'll pick off the gutless DINOs to get 55 with ease.  

    This whole thing blows.  But if we pass health care (unlikely), at least there would be that.

    So thanks again, Massachusetts.
