Depends on What the Meaning of "Is" is: When Comity Becomes Comedy

It's so good to see the Senate functioning without filibusters these days, isn't it? The vote on Bolton went flawlessly, and the Democrats kept their word not to engage in filibuster to the letter. Of course, they did refuse to vote for cloture, which is exactly what they've done for four years on Priscilla Owen and the other judicial nominees. But it wasn't a filibuster, because the Democrats say it wasn't a filibuster. Therefore it wasn't a filibuster. Well, that's good enough for me.

Wonder if Lindsay Graham is getting any sleep tonight?
