The thought process goes something like this "They'll never use this against us, because we'll never lose!".This is what made me cackle with glee when that smirking fuck Harry Reid decided to use the "nuclear option" to get his way on a Justice appointment...and the Republicans have since engaged in a rolling nuclear bombardment of all things that the Democrats keep holy (judicial appointments, as just one example).
What is it Hamburger Harper once said? "You made your bed, now get fucked in it"?
Of course once it does get used against you it becomes an unbelievable atrocity because double standards are the only standards Democrats have.
