” Here are some of the saddest responses from exactly the sort of bleeding-heart Dems who say they care about executive-branch overreach, sticking up for the little guy, you name it:

Sen. Sherrod Brown (D-Ohio): “I don’t know, there’s a lot of debates I don’t join that I agree — I’ve got stuff to do and was doing a lot of other things.”…

Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt., who caucuses with the Ds): “I’m working right now on many, many, other issues.”…

Sen. Bob Casey (D-Pa.): “Everyone’s got a lot of priorities and people are busy.”…

Sen. Jeff Merkley (D-Oregon): “”I’m not supporting blocking the opportunity for [up or down votes on presidential appointees].”…

Sen. Claire McCaskill (D-Mo.): “We all were shocked Republicans were doing a real filibuster instead of a procedural filibuster.”
