  •  Voter Ignorance Is The GOP"s Greatest Weapon (10+ / 0-)

    Again and again the Republicans count on voters being bored by the Washington process and not paying attention. And they're right. Voters for the most part don't know a filibuster from a fillister (if they even know what either is) and don't care. So the GOP can do what it wants as long as they have the votes and some fellow travelers among Democrats. But I will guarantee that the next time the GOP takes control of the Senate, the first order of business will be to ram through tight restrictions on the use of the filibuster or an outright ban.
