“Nuclear option” what stupid name
“Nuclear” sounds like a huge apocalyptic explosion with massive fatalities. In contrast, changing the rules of procedure for the Senate is a big yawner.
The rule that allows filibusters is pretty dumb anyway. Maybe it made sense in the 1800s when the Senate didn’t do that much so they had a lot of free time to waste, but it doesn’t make sense anymore.
I urge the mainstream media to stop calling it that.
