Pubs Cave On Financial Filibuster


Who could have predicted this?

Republican senators have agreed to stop filibustering debate on financial-regulatory reform legislation. After successfully blocking the bill for the third time in three days Wednesday, Republicans appeared ready to go another round. But when Majority Leader Harry Reid threatened to throw a Senate sleepover by calling votes all night, the GOP backed down.

Practically everybody. And we did.

Remember when we were begging Harry to force the GOP to defend its insane, incoherent policies physically? On live teevee in front of the whole country? We said that all those fake filibusters would either a) collapse or b) make the voters realize just what shitheads the GOoPers are.

Harry said No. Remember? He woulodn’t do it. It wouldn’t work.

Guess who was right and who was wrong. Again.
