    I thought the time came with the FISA revisions and the authorization of warrantless wiretaps.

    I thought the time came with retroactive immunity for the telecoms.

    I thought the time came with the Stupak/Nelson amendments to the health care bill.

    I thought the time came with the legalization of torture and indefinite detention.

    I thought the time came with the horrendous 2005 bankruptcy "reform" bill.

    But you know who never actually thought then that the time had come for using the instrument they supposedly had at hand?

    Nobody, that's who.

    I'm still ruing those days. And we did have the filibuster.
