Harry Reid: You know what? Maybe the Filibuster is a Good Thing

Who here was prepared for the level of schadenfreude that a Trump win would deliver? Forget turkey, dressing, and pumpkin pie, I’m full to the gills with liberal salty tears. Stop it! I can’t take anymore. That’s probably not true, but wow, it’s getting difficult to breath.

The latest helping of fattening Liberal dessert was delivered today by none other than Harry Reid. The crotchety old former Senate Tyrant decided today that perhaps the new filibuster rules he gloatingly imposed in 2013 to ram through executive appointments might not be such a good idea.


That was then. This is now.

Now, Senator Reid and the dummies in the press are scared by bogeymen like Senator Sessions. The filibuster rules are really, really bad for the party out of power. When it was the Republicans out of power, that was fine and dandy. Now that the Democrats may be voiceless and powerless, understanding is finally dawning.

To quote a popular phrase of the left,”That’s how Democracy works.” (We’re a republic, I know, but they seem to be unaware, so ….)
