The Dems can continue to treat things like the filibuster and monkeying with the court like they're playing bocce while the GOP is throwing hand grenades, or they can level the playing field with a Sherman tank. If they choose option 1, they'll wind up controlling nothing despite having won the popular vote everywhere besides the Deep South, Great Plains, and the northern Rockies.

What's going on is no joke, son. I'm all for the Dems playing fair if there's some way to ensure that the GOP does the same. But if the Dems let the GOP walk all over them, the losers are the American people, who will have an insultingly low minimum wage, no overtime pay, and no health care, and a future to look forward to where the planet turns into a hellscape.
