Ahhh, how times have changed for the Republicans...

Anyone out there remember the 'nuclear option' that they Republicans tried to use to get judges pushed through just a few years ago? Read about it here.

I remember seeing Bill Frist call to put a temporary end to the filibuster, on live TV. I was so angered that I informed my boss at the time that I was leaving work to re-register as an independent. While I generally supported the Bush nominees, I couldn't get past a check of power that is in our government; ironically, one that is in the very body of legislators to protect the small states from the big ones.

Don't worry, I kept my job and eventually re-registered as a Republican-which leaves my skin in a state of constant burning. ;)
