"There is a certain rhythm to events like the Heritage Foundation's January forum on filibuster reform. The speaker, in this case Sen. Lamar Alexander of Tennessee, says something such as, 'There is no doubt the Senate has been reduced to a shadow of itself as the world's greatest deliberative body.' Then, like clockwork, the speaker blames Democrats for the predicament: 'The demise of the Senate is not because Republicans seek to filibuster. The real obstructionists have been the Democratic majority.'" (02/09/11)
