I keep saying it: until the electorate in the US changes, then anything else is irrelevant. Conservatives could come up with the most cunning scheme ever devised by man to block X measure or score Y political point, but it won't change this country one iota. The electorate needs to change, and until they feel some real pain, network TV is just FAR too entertaining for them to get off the couch and get aggravated about the state of the country. Let it burn. It's going to happen and the last thing we need is Republican fingerprints on the wreckage.
