Senator Judd Gregg (R-NH) has a brace of procedural objections at the ready should his Democratic colleagues attempt to ram through a health care reform bill on the strength of a simple majority.
Okay, fair enough. The guy doesn't like the filibuster, and honestly believes that 51 votes are not enough to pass legislation in the senior and presumably more dignified house of Congress.
Yeah, except no. When his party wanted to drill for oil in the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge in 2005, this dust-farting double-dealer argued, "if you have 51 votes for your position, you win."
So from flip-flopping on cloture to flipping the President the bird, you can pull any perfidious horseshit you want as long as you're a Republican.
