TalkingPointsMemo is upset because the media are making it sound like “nuclear option” in refrence to ending the filibuster was invented by the Democrats. Seems like a legitimate gripe because I seem to recall hearing a Republican use the term first. It’s not really derogotory is it? Just honest. No one would argue that it’s not a big — nearly nuclear — deal to do away with the filibuster. That said, if the media are saying that the Dems came up with the term, then they should correct themselves. I stand with Marshall on this one. Mark your calendar.
