What is Dr. Frist going to do, threaten the dread nuclear option? If he does so, in a couple of months, that tool will be in the hands of the Democrats in the new Congress.Are the Republicans really that stupid? Six years ago I would have said no, but today... It certainly would make for a very entertaining filibuster debate. The funny part would be watching the Democrats gleefully vote for the nuclear option. President Michael Moore and Vice President Ted Kennedy will be very grateful, I'm sure.
