"In the spirit of Throwback Thursday, let's take a gander at Sen. Jeff Merkley (D-OR) and his thoughts on filibuster reform:
November 2013: Merkley is completely fine with then-Sen. Harry Reid (D-NV) inventing the "Reid Rule," and even thanked him for his leadership on the topic.
"Thank you for your leadership RT @SenatorReid Thanks to all of you who encouraged me to consider filibuster reform. It had to be done."
April 2017: Merkley goes full-blown emo kid when the judicial filibuster is abolished.
"The dark deed is done. McConnell has just put a knife into the heart of our We the People republic."
So which is it, Sen. Merkley? Leadership or the end of the world?" -- Christine Rousselle
