Nuclear Option: YES!!!
Again, that's YES.
Go Nuclear! WTF have they been waiting for?!?
Today in the Senate, there was a rare sighting of certain body parts — spines, balls — that aren't usually associated with Senate Democrats. Senate Republicans have been governing by filibuster ever since Obama got elected, and it's been getting worse every day. Democrats kept threatening to eliminate the filibuster — i.e. the Nuclear Option — but it was always just talk; no action. Until today.
Harry Reid and the other 51 senators who finally voted to eliminate the filibuster — You Go Guys!!!
Now that the GOP's three ring circus has been curtailed just a little, maybe, just maybe, President Barack Obama can start getting his judicial and cabinet nominees voted on and approved, just like other presidents have always done. Ya think????
Starting today, the U.S. Senate might be just a little less constipated. It's about fuckin' time!
I hate to admit it, but my favorite part of the Nuclear Option is the mass tantrum-throwing and hissy-fitting from the Right. Twist in the wind, suckers.
