    “Isn’t what is really going on here that the majority does not want to hear what others have to say, even if it is the truth? Senator Moynihan, my good friend who I served with for years, said: You are entitled to your own opinion but not your own facts. The nuclear option abandons America’s sense of fair play. It is the one thing this country stands for: Not tilting the playing field on the side of those who control and own the field. I say to my friends on the Republican side: You may own the field right now, but you won’t own it forever. I pray God when the Democrats take back control, we don’t make the kind of naked power grab you are doing. But I am afraid you will teach my new colleagues the wrong lessons.” (Sen. Joe Biden, Floor Remarks, 5/23/05)

    Saw a newsclip of this on Fox yesterday. If I hadn't been so angry at this attempt to totally usurp the powers of the minority, it would have been hilarious.

    This will be very amusing when the time comes that the Democrats lose control of the Senate and go crying about how unfair the Republicans are.

    They will put it back to 2/3rds a month or two before the election with a clause that it can never be changed again.
