So I'm watching TV the other day and I see Sen. Tom Udall on the Rachel Maddow show, arguing that the Senate must get rid of the filibuster. And he called his plan to do so the "constitutional option." Hmmmm, I thought to myself. That's funny, because that's exactly what Republicans tried to call the same plan when they wanted to get rid of the filibuster in 2005.
The next time the Democrats are the minority party in congress, they'll defend the honorable history of the filibuster and the Republicans will call it it an outrage.
