While Warning Frist, Byrd Gets "Hamanized" Himself

I had the admittedly twisted pleasure of hearing the comments of Sen. Byrd (D-WV) from the floor, first on Hewitt last night and then on C-SPAN (go to radioblogger.com for the audio). In a meandering tale from the Book of Esther, the senator is worried that re-intepreting the filibuster rule as to not apply to judicial appointments (the so-called nuclear option) would lead to the worm later turning on the Republicans. Here's an alternate reading: The worm is turning on the Democrats for Sen. Byrd's move twenty years ago to reduce the votes needed to end any filibuster from 67 to 60 votes.
