Epiphany



Lindsey "It pains me to say this, and pretty much everything else" Graham has had an epiphany:

“Cordray was being filibustered because we don’t like the law” that created the consumer agency, said Senator Lindsey Graham, Republican of South Carolina. “That’s not a reason to deny someone their appointment. We were wrong.”
The fact that Republicans were opposing Cordray out of ideological hostility to the agency itself, and not because of the nominee, was a key distinction Dems tried to draw as justification for threatening to change the rules by simple majority. Here is a GOP Senator on record confirming the Dem argument.
Gee, Lindsey, ya think? And do we think this might have anything to do with a claim by Nate Silver that Rs have a decent shot at regaining a majority in the Senate in 2014? Let the pre-outrage and flip-flopping begin.
