I was hoping we would get 51 this year and then be in a good position to pick up enough for a filibuster proof majority in 2012. Picking up 13 in 2012 now looks like more of a stretch.

With the Maine Witches, the South Carolina Poofter, The Alaskan Cow, the Hatched Chicken, and Taxachussetts’ Brown on “our side”, the GOP would need at least 65 members to be filibuster proof. Toss in McCainiac, McConnell, Corker, etc, and the probable number is somewheres north of 75 needed to enact any fundamental change.
