Hope you’ve got your tiny violin handy:

More from CNN:

Sen. Chuck Schumer lamented Tuesday the Democrats’ move to diminish the number of senators needed to confirm Cabinet picks from 60 votes to 51, because the new rule now hurts his party.

“I argued against it at the time. I said both for Supreme Court and in Cabinet should be 60 because on such important positions there should be some degree of bipartisanship,” Schumer, a New York Democrat and the incoming Senate minority leader, told CNN’s Dana Bash. “I won on Supreme Court, lost on Cabinet. But it’s what we have to live with now.”

Hmmm …


You know, Chuck, a good way to avoid future regret is to not do something people warned you was incredibly stupid in the first place. And you were most definitely warned that the nuclear option was a terrible idea.

Now, you’ve got nothing to show for your party’s efforts except disappointment and a whole lotta egg on your face. And we, frankly, couldn’t be more pleased.
