Gang of 14

I was feeling quite a bit of sympathy for Lincoln Chafee, softy that I am, until I heard him on Terry Gross's show yammering on and on about how noble and wonderful the Gang of 14 were, and how that bipartisan moment was one of his best times in the Senate, yadda yadda...

Look, what the Gang of 14 did was endorse the notion that the Republicans in the Senate had the right to cheat, to amend Senate rules by using a bit of trickery which no one actually believes. So, what these wonderful and noble bipartisan senators did was endorse Republican cheating. Truly these are Gods among Men.

So, any Democrats who trumpet the gang of 14 - endorsing right to cheat - are truly awful people.
