I thought this sack of poo, Reid, triggered the nuclear option? They don’t need GOP senators to pass anything they want.
Oh, I get it now, the only problem with using the nuclear option is that he can no longer make a public gripe that the bad ole GOP is obstructing things. So Reid will pretend the GOP is obstructing for media purposes.
