Abolish the filibuster

So the “nuclear option” to eliminate the filibuster for executive nominations was narrowly averted today.   And of course, only in DC could “majority rule” be called the “nuclear option.”

But the fact remains, it is long past time to eliminate the filibuster.  It is absurd that 41 votes can trump 59.

I couldn’t care which party is in control, the filibuster is profoundly undemocratic, and should be eliminated.
