While Harry Reid might have lived to regret his limited removal of the filibuster, it is not the Democrats who have been breaking the most norms in American politics lately - not by a long shot.

It's more like they should know better, and act like the completely predictable consequences of their actions were totally unforeseeable when they inevitably catch up with them. Mitch McConnell told them what was going to happen back when they nuked the judicial filibuster, and then they were shocked, shocked when he followed through with what he said he would do, let alone when he took it a step further after the norms had already been breached. These are the same geniuses currently trying to destroy the legislative filibuster while staring down what sure looks like a wave election of historic proportions, and I'm sure if they manage to wear down Joe Manchin, they'll be absolutely gobsmacked when Mitch McConnell once again does exactly what he said he would do, burning everything they care about to the ground when the gavel is back in his hands at the end of next year. These are deeply unserious people, and yet they claim to be the smart ones.

Seems like impeachment is all the rage these days.

And it may increase even more in perceived popularity nationwide.

Silly NTs, I have Aspergers, and having Aspergers is gr-r-reat!
