“We’re Not Bluffing”

The end of the filibuster of judicial nominees Thursday?

What I think has changed in the last few years is the calculation on the downside of going nuclear. How can Sen. McConnell plausibly threaten to make things worse if Democrats go nuclear given how bad things are already?

Then again, the amount of dysfunction always seems to exceed my expectations.

I should add, that if Democrats were bluffing, they’d have every incentive to say “We’re not bluffing.”
