  •  Repubs filibuster as a matter of course and put (5+ / 0-)

    anonymous holds on nominations as a matter of course (until the anonymous hold rule was changed recently; but a single senator can still put a hold on any nomination, but just can't do it anonymously anymore).  Dem senators don't filibuster as a matter of course and put holds on nominations as a matter of course.

    And you knew that.  It sucks that you'd disingenuously ask a question you knew the answer to.

    •  Of course I know that. (1+ / 0-)

      But I don't know if Sixty Something knows that. Hence my question.

      And thank you for underscoring what a piss-poor job Democrats do compared to their Republican peers in the Senate.

      The real enemy of the good is not the perfect, but the mediocre.
