    McCain is a Swamp Rat. That speech a council of Swamp Rats wrote for him was stupid. The reference to stop listening to talk radio was pathetic. McCain is a puppet of Kissinger and Lieberman and other pieces of shit. Notice the writers of that speech do not have that neocon clown comment about representing American citizens .

    The problem with the nuclear option is that, when the political tides turn against you, then the opposing MAJORITY can then nuke you too.

    But I do agree, the filibuster is an antiquated piece of do-nothing tradition. We should get rid of it and let the political chips fall where they may.

    But since McConnel is not going to drop it, the subject is moot for the moment.

    The Dems have already used it that's the point, Reid already ended the tradition, that pandoras box was opened years ago, the Republicans need to stop playing nice because the opposition sure as hell doesn't.

    So, McCain, after saying "I will not vote for the bill as it is today.", voted for the bill as it was that day.

    That is, after his speech about how bipartisan he was, he did what he's always done through his entire career. He voted exactly the way the Republican leadership told him to vote.

    McCain has never been a "maverick". He's an obedient party hack who pretends to be a maverick.

    Stop listening to the bombastic loudmouths on the radio and television and the Internet. To hell with them. They don’t want anything done for the public good. Our incapacity is their livelihood.

    BINGO

    Reid only introduced the Nuclear Option for appointment confirmation.

    SCOTUS nominees and legislation were not included, so McConnel should sweep the rest of it away too.
