"What a disaster this is for the Republican Party."

On big issues like the filibuster cave-in, there's not much a little fellow like Salt Lick can add to what the brighter and better-informed folks at Power Line write here and here. Then there's the 100 or so commentators listed at Drudge.

For some time now, I've viewed the Republican party with ambivalence. This filibuster cave-in turns the ambivalence to distrust.

Today's Roanoke Times' editorial (likely written before "the deal" was consummated) suggests that voters look at both major parties and declare "a pox on both their houses." The sad part of that is, even the party led by a doctor looks sick.
