Our world changes so much faster than it used to. For instance, Chuck Schumer claimed in 2005 that ending the Senate filibuster would be “doomsday for democracy.”

It took him all the way until 2022 to claim that keeping the filibuster would be doomsday for democracy. As flip-flops on principles go, that’s practically slow motion.

But things happen so fast now that on Thursday, Democrats spent the morning denouncing the filibuster as an assault on democracy and a tool of white supremacists (Rep. Ayanna Pressley even called it the “Jim Crow filibuster.”) Then, just hours later, they blocked Ted Cruz’s move to sanction Russia’s Nordstream 2 Pipeline by using the filibuster. It had 55-44 support but failed because it didn’t reach the 60-vote threshold to overcome the Democrats’ filibuster. Those racists!

Note to famous Russia fanboy Bernie Sanders: When you have 55-44 support and still lose, you can at least legitimately gripe about the minority thwarting the will of the majority. When you lose 52-48, you’re the minority.
