That WaPo article about the Senate having trouble doing business says:

Reid could not avail himself of LBJ-style maneuvers, using threats or promises of public-works projects to bring Republicans along.

"There's not a member up here that would agree to these bullying tactics in this day and age," Reid spokesman Jim Manley said. "For those harkening back to the golden years, they're completely misreading the current situation."

However, the headlines on Drudge Report refute Manley's statement.

New spending bill totals $1.1 TRILLION...
$575 million PER PAGE...
6,488 earmarks...
McConnell fumes: 'No one has seen it'...

A majority leader who can push through 6,488 earmarks that nobody has even seen must have plenty of power to threaten or promise.

This kind of out-of-control, irresponsible spending is no doubt responsible for another Drudge headline:

Really lame duck: Congress' Job Approval Rating Worst in GALLUP History...
