This quote from [Senate Democrat Harry] Reid is unintentionally revealing, as well as hilarious:
“We’ve become like the House of Commons. Whoever has the most votes wins. It hasn’t worked that way in 216 years.”
I’ve always found the Senate Democrats’ attitude puzzling, but now I understand: they think they’re in the House of Lords!
Whoever has the most votes wins. A stunning thought, I’m sure you’ll agree. Can’t see it catching on, though.
