    Conservative Democrats and a weak-willed Harry Reid defeated the gun bill before the Gooper House even had a chance.

    Banking on the American people to be able to sort all this out and declare the adult in the room the winner is a very big bet. -Digby

      I don't disagree that Harry is a weak Reid, but a majority short of 60 voted to  support background checks.

      But this gives most Dems (other than the DINOs) a big, overwhelmingly popular issue for 2014.

      There's no such thing as a free market!

        Harry Reid's refusal to go after real filibuster reform is what allowed to the bill to be killed by weak-kneed Democrats. That's why I mentioned Harry Reid.
