AP gets the law wrong on the nuclear option 

David Espo and Jesse J. Holland write:

Republicans can ban judicial filibusters by majority vote, and Democrats concede Frist may be only one or two votes shy of the necessary total.
(via AP)

Indeed, Republican's "can" do that, but only because they have the power.

Not because it's legal.

The Republican's own parliamentarian says what they're doing is wrong (break the rules to change the rules").

C'mon, AP, we love ya. But get it right!
