Let a waiting multitude understand that this publication is not in the least way disturbed or upset or indignant at the threat of the Democrats to use "reconciliation" to sidestep the Republican minority on health care. My only beef with the Democrats is: how in the Sam Hill did they let themselves get maneuvered into a quarter where the exercise of majority rule is seen as a betrayal of a sacred trust, if not the Code of Hammurabi? There's a long and pretty good Wiki on the notion of filibuster, detailing its corrupt alliance with all the foes of civil rights, and its linguistic provenance in the idea of "freebooter." Freebooter: that's, it, pirate. Let's hear a little less about all working together, and a bit more about piracy.
Fn.: Or if that's too strong, just call refashion the reconciliation as "the Reagan maneuver." Cf. link.
