Putting in an express lane
“There will be a shutdown that will last for a very long time.”
With “potentially disastrous implications.”
“Long term, for the health of the Senate, we can’t keep doing this.”
“McConnell doesn’t start many fights; he finishes them.”
“There’s so little trust between the two parties that it was very difficult to put together an agreement that would avert changing the rules.”
Ayotte: Senate Dems forcing McConnell to go nuclear.
Gang of three?
Bennet: “I will oppose efforts to filibuster the nomination …”
Bad faith clowns.
McCaskill: “By the way, Gorsuch was one of the better ones.”
“If they filibuster this guy, it is because politics has taken over reason…”
So this is where the Senate Minority Leader wants to focus his attention
And so will anyone else.
Liberal Yale law prof: You’d better give them to him, then.
Plus: A Cruz-Bernie debate? It’s on.
The consequences of the Pompeo betrayal?

“It’s good for us, it’s good for them.”
The base is willing but the spirit is weak
“…there’s an easy way and there’s a hard way.”
“It’s rank hypocrisy if we don’t”
Exposing the nature of the nuclear option.
Desperate to distract from ObamaCare.
Speeding up or slowing down?
Call his bluff?
