Krauthammer: Filibuster Change ‘Turned All Republicans Into Sicilians’

The best line concerning Thursday’s filibuster rule change by the Democrats goes to syndicated columnist Charles Krauthammer.

Appearing on Fox News’s Special Report Friday, Krauthammer said, “What’s essentially happened is that this action has turned all the Republicans into Sicilians.”

JONAH GOLDBERG: The filibuster used to empower every one of 100 Senators and made them all much more powerful because it gave them the prerogative to shut everything down. Now that it runs like a parliament, Harry Reid is the most powerful guy, but it diminishes their power.
