Misread the necessary numbers on the rules change. Still a narrower margin, but doesn't require Democrats to help out.

If they change it to only require simple majority then I guarantee it will never change back. Partisanship is dead. The thugs won't appoint a supreme court justice, the thugs won't appoint any other judicial appointments. This will never be forgotten and there will never be compromise again. It's obstructionism on both sides from here on out.

You mean "Bipartisanship is dead," right?
