(h/t Digby)

He's not only reduced to making statements that are meant to be repulsive, he's also a hyper-partisan hypocrite.  Consider what he said about the filibuster back in 2004:
If the Senate, which has the constitutional right to make its own rules, decides that it wants to require a super-majority vote to pass certain bills such as tax bills -- and they can do that. They can write those rules all day long -- such a rule would not infringe on presidential power. But to do so when it affects a presidential power, which takes us into a separation of powers issue, like the appointment of judges, that is unconstitutional, in my layman's view.
