Think Oregon Sen. Jeff Merkley’s disappointed after his all-night filibuster against SCOTUS nominee Neil Gorsuch failed to prevent Republicans from deploying the nuclear option? It turns out “disappointed” would be an understatement; the guy is in full-blown despair mode:
The dark deed is done. McConnell has just put a knife into the heart of our We the People republic.

Oh, the humanity! If only the good senator could’ve prevented this …

Thank you for your leadership RT @SenatorReid Thanks to all of you who encouraged me to consider filibuster reform. It had to be done.

Indeed. Spare us, Senator. Before you sprain a tear duct or something.
@SenJeffMerkley Well at least you're not being overly-dramatic about it.
Harry Reid says "hi!"

First Dem senator that can name me five pro-life SCOTUS candidates they wouldn't filibuster wins. Otherwise, cut out the melodrama. https://t.co/IJeSBQpZ83
