Former Democratic U.S. Senator Harry Reid passed away yesterday.

Harry Reid did some terrible things as a U.S. Senator — and even boasted about many of them — but he was still a human being who had a family that now misses him terribly, so we won’t speak ill of the dead.

That doesn’t mean, however, that we need to ignore his legacy.

For what it’s worth, Ezra Klein thinks that the best way to honor Harry Reid is to nuke the filibuster:

Because it worked out so well the first time!

We’re certainly not going to complain about Supreme Court Justices Neil Gorsuch, Brett Kavanaugh, and Amy Coney Barrett. But it’s telling that Ezra has apparently learned nothing from the whole experience. At least he’s in some very illustrious company:

Whatever you say, buddy.

All guys like Ezra Klein and Noah Smith are doing is begging to be punished even harder.

Don’t say we didn’t warn you, Ezra.
