So, How Did The Republicans Do It?

How quickly people forget.

After Bill Frist threatened the “nukular option” [this was the Hedgemony, after all], that champion of bi-partisanship, and hero to the current President, Joe LIEberman [who was still officially a Democrat at the time], teamed up with his best friend, John McCain, to create the Gang of 14. Of course, Mary Landrieu, Ben Nelson, Olympia Snowe, and Susan Collins had to be part of it. The Gang pretty much eliminated filibusters.

It was a great system that provided the American people with such wonderful public servants as Samuel Alito, the fifth member of “The Synod”, the five Catholic judicial activists on the Supreme Court who just used their powers of immaculate conceptualization to make corporations people and money speech, when they were asked to decide if a movie was entertainment or a campaign ad. [Stare decisis? We don’t need no stinkin’ stare decisis!]

[If you were in doubt – yes, this is definitely sarcasm.]
