'This notion that the Senate is dysfunctional is not because of the rules. It's because of behavior...'

That's Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell shooting down the Democrats' bullshit meme that the parliamentary rules have gridlocked the Senate. At the New York Times, "The New Senate's First Task Will Likely Be Trying to Fix Itself" (at Memeorandum).

Professor John Pitney has some great perspective on this, "Switching Sides on the Filibuster." And one with a much, much lesser intellect says dammit, stand aside and let the Democrats have their way!
