David Waldman suggests it wasn’t all bad, here, at the Daily Kos — that, for example, the Senate may have gotten rid of the one-person anonymous “hold” — and that’s something. His view is instructive and worth reading.
But I fear Rachel has it close to right when she says nothing has changed in the minority’s ability to make sure nothing gets done . . . except that now nothing may get done . . . faster. This seven-minute clip is devastating.
All we were asking is that the filibuster be put back to being the filibuster, as we all know it from the movie (watch): make the minority actually do it, so the filibuster would be used sparingly, as had always been the case. But that, apparently, was too much dysfunction for the Senate to shed.
See you Monday.
