..of this Liberal’s call to kill the filibuster, sildenafil shop if I believed for a second that he would be in favor of killing it if the Democrats were still in the minority.

    Of course, you can say that Republicans are political hacks just like the Democrats. Take for instance this one, who was calling to abolish the filabuster when it was used by Democrats to block judicial appointments, and is now saying he’ll use it against Obama.

    Actually, I don’t give a shit which side you’re on.

    Unfair is unfair.

    I was against the “nuclear option” when it was floated by Republicans when they still had the Senate majority, and I’m still opposed to getting rid of the filibuster now, no matter who’s running the Senate these days.

    Glad to hear that, Zach.

    But, I’m not bothered by people who are consistent.

    You could be consistently for the fillibuster or consistently against it and I’d respect you the same way. (And I’ll apologize to this poster if he says he’s always been against it.)

    But I can’t abide people when they’re for or against something depending on how it advantages them.

    Unfortunately Elliot, that’s what politics has become – it’s more about how something can be politically advantageous as opposed to how it might be good for regular folks.
