Filibuster fails, cloture vote passes overwhelmingly.

EDIT: Quin from Confirm Them is referring to it as the "Switzibuster". I don't know if this is a Quin original, but I'm going to start using it.

EDIT 2: Prof Althouse has a reaction from the Daily Kos folks...
WTF?! I was expecting a close call. Not a mere 25. What happened?

i'm pissed. ...everyone of those dems who voted for cloture should be brought down
Yes, take those rational people down. Replace them with a fleet of Ted Kennedys. Here's the roll call vote on cloture.
