17. Yet the Republicans used the filibuster, even though they opposed its use before.
Republicans would say, "That was then, this is now." If the Democrats are as ineffectual as they appear, then it bodes ill for '08.

Why is it that the Republicans seem so in-your-face in charge when they have any kind of majority and even in the minority they "take no prisoners", but Democrats cower, unable to do anything regardless of who has the majority? If this is just a PR problem, then we have the wrong Democrats in charge...
