Not much time to talk about the big filibuster deal now. All I can say is that if and when the Democrats do retake the Senate, they should immediately push for a massive government takeover—and I mean an outright invasion—of the health care system, prompt a filibuster on the bill, threaten to abolish the filibuster, and then extract major concessions—expand Medicaid!—from moderate Republicans in order to avert a crisis. It's going to be awesome!

Also, this is funny.
