Well, the White House's cat is out of the bag on guns, not that any of the wingnuts waited for things to be announced to call for impeachment and/or revolution.

There are a few other gun-related stories we should share, too. And some random crazy-ish news to take our minds off that stuff.

Oh, and Sandy relief passed the House on Tuesday, thanks to Democrats. Except Jim Cooper of Tennessee, that is. Let's talk about all the special ways he was a super dick about that, shall we? David Nir will join us for that, so be sure to tune in!

We're LIVE at 9 a.m. ET with Kagro in the Morning, thanks to

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.

  •  Can You Touch on Filibuster Reform? (4+ / 0-)
    Recommended by:

    I was wondering if you could spend a little time, if not today than tomorrow, discussing where things stand regarding Filibuster Reform in light of January 22nd being "Day One"?

    On that topic, I read your last post (January 15) and I have a little different take on what Reid reportedly told the PBS reporter.  First, here's what Reid reportedly said:

    In a locally aired interview over the weekend on a PBS affiliate in Las Vegas, Reid said he wants to require an obstructing minority of senators to occupy the floor and speak only after cloture has been invoked to begin debate.

    Now here is the PBS reporter's interpretation of the above statement:

    In other words, 41 senators could silently block debate from beginning, but once 60 senators vote to move to debate, filibustering senators must speak on the floor.

    But, I'm not sure if that interpretation is correct.  My interpretation, for what its worth, is that the "talking filibuster" would start once cloture on the "Motion to Proceed" has been invoked.  I base this interpretation on the fact that the quote talks about cloture being invoked to "begin debate".  Since Reid has previously said that he wants to eliminate the 60 vote threshold for cloture on the "Motion to Proceed", I can only assume that the cloture he is talking about in this quote would be invoked by a simple majority.

    Of course I could be wrong.  I think the more likely scenario is that either Reid misspoke or was poorly quoted.  He may have meant that the talking filibuster would start only after the first cloture vote on the bill itself failed to garner the required 3/5s majority, which, as I understand it, is basically the Merkley resolution.

    Please feel free to agree or disagree with me.

      What is Reid's calculus? And would this reform be more or less useful than other proposed reforms of the filibuster.

        I forgot to mention that the reporter's interpretation makes no sense.  Why would Reid want to allow Republicans to block bringing a bill to the floor with 41 votes.  You would never get to a talking filibuster since the Republicans would simply block the Motion to Proceed with 41 votes.  We would be in the same boat we are right now.  Makes no sense.
