Evan Bayh, Good Government Crusader

February 17th, 2010at 07:28pm Posted by Eli

Yes, it’s all well and good that retiring-in-the-douchebaggiest-possible-way Evan Bayh is suddenly on board with the filibuster reform that can’t even be voted on until after his retirement takes effect, but I have to wonder whether he really wants to reduce the filibuster threshold to eliminate gridlock, or to preserve the co-presidency of his conservadem buddies Ben Nelson and Joe Lieberman.

If the Senate ends up split 50-50 in 2011, I wouldn’t be at all surprised to see the idea of eliminating the filibuster completely start gaining momentum…
