Throw Snowe under the bus

So Olympia Snowe says a public option bill will never pass the Senate, after President Obama's speech last night? Fine, time to throw her and any fantasy of bipartisanship entirely under the bus. The hell with 60 votes, the hell with trying to get her ... or any Republican.... to vote for the plan. I know it's hard, but let's all try to spell it: r·e·c·o·n·c·i·l·i·a·t·i·o·n.

And, hell, who says you need 60 votes to end debate, anyway? Why is it that no one will ever even consider anymore calling their damn bluff and forcing them to actually filibuster? This bill is important enough to undergo that tedium for a while, isn't it?
