    The 60 votes ensure cloture and the end of the filibuster.

    KKK Byrd filibustered the Civil Rights Act of 1964, and LBJ had to ask the Republican leadership of the Senate for assistance to end the filibuster his party was conducting.

    They already deserve to lose in the next election.

    They're Democrats.

    They're corrupt, incompetent, and stupid.

    Similar but worse than Republicans in every way.

    They don't actually conduct 'real' fillibusters anymore. Just the threat is enough to do it.


    There are reasons why this is, but I don't understand any of them. I think if there's gonna be a filibuster, the busters better stand their asses up there and give us shrimp recipes, songs, and phone book data until their legs fall out from under them

    Seems like they are both equally misleading to me.
