The Republican roll-over...

As many of you know, the Republicans "compromised" with the Democrats in the Senate to not end the filibuster as long as the Dems promise not to except under "extraordinary circumstances." As a witty commentary by Ann Coulter posits, the Majority party allowed the Minority party to bully them into again letting them have control of the Senate's decisions rather than allowing the simple majority to win, regardless of the party affiliation. Allowing the minority to dictate...it's becoming a potentially dangerous and increasingly commonplace event in politics and other realms that needs to be monitored and modified to prevent being held hostage to the ideology of the few.
