In (Partial) Defense of Harry Reid
An alternative title to this post might be "Mitch McConnell is perhaps the greatest douchebag in the history of the Senate." And pardon me for questioning the leader of the Democratic quants, Nate Silver: "If Reid can't get [the Senate GOP] to pay a greater public price, then the Democrats ought to find somebody else who can. " Would anyone care to remind Mr. Silver how many Senate seats Republicans lost in this most recent election? Is Silver seriously arguing that Democrats ought to have won races in Georgia, Kentucky, and Mississippi on the basis of excessive filibustering? And if he is, can I have some of what he's smoking?
