So...How does the Fristian idea of doing away with the filibuster look now that Democrats have the power?

I love a good rant. Surprised? Here's one I like:

Conservatism Vs. Democracy

Republicans, given time, will always reveal their true natures. When they
inevitably do, the majority of Americans will send them packing. Finding
themselves outside the gate, republicans will scratch at the door and beg to be
let back in. This happened from 1954 to 1994. Republicans were sent outside
because they're impossible to house-break. It took American voters forty years
to forget that fact and let them back in. Swept into power by the Gingrich
Revolution, they immediately got the biggest shovels they could find and
proceeded to sack the nations treasury. They began dismantling the economic
infrastructure. They shredded the social safety net for the young, the old, the
sick and accelerated the nations withdrawal from its social responsibilities.
Republicans long for the day when the wholesale embracement of corporate power
will eclipse the human spirit.

Quote of the day:

"Heh, heh.... have you ever spent a month clearing brush in the midst of the
biggest threat to the country in our nation's history? Have ya?
Heh, heh, heh..... try dealing with what I had to deal with and then we
can talk. Heh, heh."

...George W. Bush to newly elected Representative Joe Donnely at the official Meet and greet.
