Today in Chickenshit Politicians

Apparently Senate Democrats simply don't want to get anything done this Congress, out of fear that moving the Senate slightly in the direction of majority rule will hamper their ability to prevent bad things from happening in the future (possibly, they think, as soon as 2012). This is, of course, incredibly short-sighted, and makes me wonder if moderate Democrats would simply prefer not to get anything done, while using the new social norm of 60-votes as a convenient scapegoat. We can only hope that Merkley, Udall, Bennett, and the others stick around in the Senate long enough to have the opportunity to be the ones calling the shots, and maintain their zeal for the cause.

Update: link fixed.
