60 votes?

Back during the days when Republicans were threatening to end the use of the filibuster for judicial nominees, I argued that the best reason to do so was that Democrats would be sure to throw the filibuster in the trash as soon as they came to power.

Guess what? They did. Those media types frothing at the mouth over the relatively-limited exception to the filibuster that was proposed? I don't seem to hear much from them these days.
