Frivolous Filibuster Lawsuit

Yeah, still stupid:

Even as Democrats are pushing to change the rules of the Senate, a federal court plans to consider a legal challenge to the chamber’s rules Monday.

Four House Democrats and the nonpartisan political reform group Common Cause are suing to end the use of the filibuster, calling it “an accident of history,” and unconstitutional “because they are inconsistent with the principle of majority rule.”

Even if House Dems, let alone Common Cause, had standing, it doesn't pass the laugh test, smell test, or any other test.  The Senate's gotta work out its own dysfunction.
