    such spineful things coming from Capitol Hill . . . until now.

    Why Reid refuses to play any hardball is frustrating:  

     

    "Look, Mitch, here's the deal:  y'all give us what we want, and I mean everything1 we want and we'll pledge not to take the investigatory steps that'll lead to breaking your Party for a generation, with about 100 prominent -- and disgraced -- Republicans all in orange jump-suits frog-marched in Federal Prison for the rest of their lives.  Hell, if you thing that our agenda's so misguided, then it'll play-out that way and y'all can win back the Hill and the White House over the next couple of elections.  I'm thinking, though, Mitch, that you're afraid what we want will work too well.  Be that as it may, 'Yes' or 'No'?"

    .

     Or something like that.
