The Definition of Extraordinary

Call it what it is, the endless debate on John Bolton's nomination is a filibuster hiding behind the pretense of "needing more information". The fact that the word "filibuster" has not been used in this context seems to have satisfied the Moderate Fourteen into not beginning discussions.

Evidently then, we have established the definition of extraordinary. Namely, extraordinary is anything having to do with the Senate's commentary on the exercise of presidential power. So in a way, Senate Democrats are returning to Constitutional Originalism in a big way.
