Remind me: what happened to the Filibuster? Cloture? Senate Holds on Nominees?

You remember, McCain's vaunted "Regular Order", the time-honored Senate traditions that the GOP used to prevent Obama from getting shit done and filling Judicial appointments?

I did see that Grassley is planning to do away with "Blue Slips" that allow Senators to reject nominees from their home states. Which is burning another tradition to the ground in the interests of exercising their power today.

Is every order of business in the Senate being done through reconciliation?
