Toothpaste and Tube

So, reading my Washington Times just now, I came across this quote in an article on House Democrats by Mr. Charles Hurt.
Meanwhile, Senate Democrats emphasized the need for Republican cooperation.
"We really need bipartisanship," said incoming Majority Whip Richard J. Durbin, the Illinois Democrat who helped lead the filibusters of President Bush's judicial nominees.

A nice example of trying to put the toothpaste back into the tube. I'm sorry, but you can't be as bitterly partisan as the Democrats (think Chief Justice Roberts' nomination process) and then demand fair play.

The real question is: Do the current Republicans have the spine to stand up to this sort of nonsense?
