A Democrat conundrum


It is interesting that some filibuster—happy Senate democratic leaders readily conjure up Alexis de'Tocqueville's coined dictum " The Tyranny of the Majority" when expressing their disdain for the so called nuclear option, and then turn around and declare that there are significant numbers in the polls showing that most Americans are sympathetic to their plight. [Leave aside for the moment the manufactured poll results via loaded questions.]

Isn't that pretty much contending that there is a majority of the populace that supports a position which emphatically opposes majority rule? If that is really the case, then shouldn't we then listen to their plea and then ignore it? Boy,

No one ever really said Democrats are very smart, but when it comes to word games they sure are crafty.
