““The threat to change Senate rules is a raw abuse of power and will destroy the very checks and balances our founding fathers put in place to prevent absolute power by any one branch of government,” Sen. Harry Reid (D-Nev.) said in 2005 in reference to Republican efforts to invoke the “nuclear option” to expedite the nomination of President George W. Bush’s judicial nominees.

Then-Sen. Barack Obama added in 2005: “I sense that talk of the nuclear option is more about power than about fairness … I believe some of my colleagues propose this rules change because they can get away with it rather than because they know it’s good for our democracy.

“The American people want less partisanship in this town, but everyone in this chamber knows that if the majority chooses to end the filibuster – if they choose to change the rules and put an end to democratic debate – then the fighting and the bitterness and the gridlock will only get worse,” the senator from Illinois added.”

“Two. Thats a very small number of filibusters for an intelligent and compassionate man like Harry Reid to take such a sensible action. Don't you think there are a few more than two?”

“I feel that the 51 vote option is very American, very democratic. The filibuster was being used as a sledge hammer to punish the country for voting in Barack Obama. It's been so completely distorted from its original purpose, that there was no choice. Let McConnell say"you're going to be sorry." We already are. And we're sick of it. There'll be wailing and gnashing of teeth on the media right this week. And I'll be enjoying every minute of it.”

“Joe (have I mentioned in the last five minutes that I was a congressman) Scarborough is going to mention that he might run for congress again so he can mention it every two minutes.”

“Funny part is he quit and caused his district to have to pay for a special election to fill his seat so that he could take a job that paid better in a prominent law firm. His actions (then later Palin's) have led me to believe that laws should passed that if you quit an elected office for reasons other than personal illness or family tragedy, you should be barred from holding office again. You have already proven you lack the committment to public office.”

“You know if you poll 1800 people, your sample median is about .0000005% of the population. So I have to laugh at a majority of these polls. And on the other hand most people aren't anywhere near as informed as the political junkies in here. And of course, if you're a neocon bagger, you're not informed at all. You're just in the blogs to spew Obama hatred and argue with progressives. Because can anyone remember the last time any of them offered anything constructive? Also, most conservative polls are taken in Jackson County Mississippi.”

“I like what Vince Wilfork said in his interview after the game. When the offense racks up 45 points, the defense gets complacent. Wilfork said he loved a thirteen to ten game because it was then up to the defense to step up. And step up he did. I think Wilfork has a strong point. And maybe that's why the Pat's defense has been so weak in the past few years. Brady likes to win. That's what he gets paid for. I didn't see him in anybody's face, it looked to me like he was screaming at the sky. He just wants it to be better.”

“There's a big difference between "sin" and ethics violations" if you're a right wing phony Christian. Sin is not covered in any law because of separation of church and state, except when it comes to vaginal probes and shutting down clinics. Then sinners must be punished by the state. Also ethnic cleansing of the polls will be a great penance for the sin of not being white.”

“They are taught in church that the man is the master of the house.It's ingrained into their everyday thinking. In my opinion this is a form of unconscious bigotry. They feel they are doing God's will by taking over as masters of women and "inferior" races and "weaker" human beings. Bigots must feel they are superior to those they hate and if they are taught that superiority, everything they think is therefore justified and shameless. In this case, they are exercising their responsibility as masters to know what's best for "inferior" women, and coming to their rescue as responsible men of God.”

“Where I live in Texas there are way too many Black Widows on the property. I've only seen 3 Brown Recluses in my 11 years here. I've been bitten only by a wolf spider. It made a red dot on my leg. There was no pain at all and I don't believe they are poisonous. Black Widows are very slow, but the Recluses are fast. Our biggest problem right now however is a new influx of sculptured scorpions. We just had grey bark and yelleo striped initially, but there's a migration from New Mexico of these sculptured devils. They're mostly outside hiding during the day and move around at night, but I have killed two in the house. Creepy.”
