If anyone deserves this title, it is surely NR’s publisher Jack Fowler.  At an editorial meeting this morning we were discussing the House of Representatives.  The issue of cloture came up.  Jack, briskly: “The House doesn’t have a cloture rule.”

I don’t know about you, but I found this sensationally impressive.  I mean, how many people–people not employed on Capitol Hill–know that?  Five?

[And if it's not true, which would mean that I have acutely embarrassed Jack by airing it, then I'm out of a job.  I'll be posting a resume on Craig's List.]
