Republicans and the Senate filibuster

Cenk Uygur of The Young Turks makes some excellent points about the filibuster in Disastrously Timed Filibuster Comments By Harry Reid YouTube date 05/20/2012:



Cenk is ranting a bit here, but the basic point he's making, that the Democrats are way too willing to let the Republicans kick them and kick them and kick them again, is right on the mark. And the corruption of the system by big money is the single biggest factor in producing that situation.

"It is the logic of our times
No subject for immortal verse
That we who lived by honest dreams
Defend the bad against the worse."
