What The Hell?

PPH editorial today:
Maine's moderate GOP senators, Susan Collins and Olympia Snowe, are focal points as Frist searches for the votes needed to change the rules. Both senators have expressed concern that eliminating the filibuster for judicial nominees would destroy relations with Democrats. Indeed, minority Democrats have dubbed the rule change the "nuclear option," and have threatened to shut down the Senate if it is used.

A must-read op-ed from the same paper today explains just how devious the rules change (which Republicans have dubbed the "nuclear option") is.

No wonder the PPH is down to 2 sheets per section during the week, and was forced to lower the price of the Sunday edition to $1.10 to boost dwindling sales.

JANUS faced editorials by Porter just might have something to do with it.

..When they finally go out of business, it will be a great day for Maine's forests!
