At PP today, I asked when is a roll not a roll? It's about the Hastert Rule and House Republicans. Also about House Republicans: at Greg's place, I said that the reason they don't adopt the sensible divided government strategy that Democrats used in 2007-2008 of passing the legislation they wanted to run on is that, well, they don't have any. I don't think I was clear over there: I don't consider this an inherent weakness of Republicans or conservatives; it's just the mark of this particular group of conservative Republicans.
What else? I have a new column up at TAP today about executive orders, Congress, and presidents.
Yesterday at PP, I said that the key for Senate reform now is whether Democratic Senators are, right now, hearing things from their constituents which will send them back to Washington in a mood for pushing Harry Reid on the filibuster. And earlier in the week I defended the House's right to use money to support DOMA in the courts.
