And piled with fruits, awake again
Thanksgivings for the golden hours,
The early and the latter rain!

The Washington Post’s editorial board is none too happy about filibuster reform.
In the wake of the U.S. Senate’s vote to change the rules so Republicans can no longer routinely bottle up the President’s nominees, the Post has gone all out to decry the change, publishing an editorial and multiple columns (including a guest column) calling it a mistake, or a travesty, or a power grab:
- Senator Lamar Alexander: A tyranny of the majority
- Dana Milbank: Democrats’ naked power grab
- Ruth Marcus: In filibuster fight, the Democrats go too far
- Editorial: After filibuster vote, both parties will face nasty ‘nuclear’ fallout
Meanwhile, the Post is running a column from George F. Will, entitled “Obama’s unvraveling presidency.”
The Post’s editorial page really does epitomize everything that is wrong with the Beltway. It is the home of some of the stalest, most predictable conservative boilerplate to be found just about anywhere, and this weekend’s crop of opinion pieces only reinforces that.
