Turning the Tide

I agree with Kos on the prospect of a Dem filibuster of Alito. The tide seems to be turning in the Democrats’ favor. Dare the GOP to go nuclear and make a simple majority sufficient to decide. It won’t be long before we’re passing national health care legislation (that everyone will end up loving, by the way) with 51 votes.

Glenn Reynolds says that Dems in 2005 (Libby indictment, closed Senate meeting, Alito filibuster) are turning into Repubs of 1998. As if this were a bad thing for the Democrats. Yeah, things really collapsed for the GOP after 1998. That was their high water mark for sure. Is Prof. Reynolds nuts? Don’t answer that…
