There are a TON of things slated to be taken up by the Senate, which excludes the house, which are quite scary... and probably a good part of the reason that the ‘Rats want to undo the filibuster. Things like the LOST treaty, ARMS treaty, KYOTO or KYOTO-like/crap-n-trade, amnesty, etc. And, mark my words, just prior to any switch back to republican control, they’ll re-instate the filibuster if not strengthen it!

They must be terribly arrogant to assume they will never again be in the minority.
The Senate was set up with filibusters because slowness is a virtue in government.

At some point, the Republicans will be back in the majority, then the Dems will scream and holler about the new rule being unfair to the minority party.

(Lincoln freed the slaves. Obama just got them ALL back......................)
In recent years, the Senate Republican minority has employed filibusters
The author seems to have a lapse of memory when he left out the common use of the filibuster in recent years by the democrat minority.
Are the rats that crazy? Do they think that they will remain in power in the Senate forever?
