Today, on NPR's Talk of the Nation, John Cornyn (R-Texas) talked about the filibuster. Needless to say, he was fried, even by a member of his own party. Sen. Cornyn made the demolition of the filibuster seem like the best thing for the nation. It seemed like what he was telling us is that we should all let the one-party system take care of everything. We won't even need to think! Just sit back and let one party take control. Screw checks and balances! Screw the constitution! They're Republicans! They don't need democracy!
