Joe posts in the forum that the major media seem to be ignoring the major constitutional event going on in Washington: an old -fashioned talk-til-you-drop filibuster debate in the Senate. okay, it’s not exactly like Jimmy Stewart in “Mr. Smith Goes to Washington”—it’s only a 30-hour marathon—but still it’s the next step for Republicans to force Democrats to abide by their constitutional obligations and vote on judicial nominees.
I have to say though that Republicans are getting a taste of their own medicine. While they didn’t use such extreme tactics during the Clinton years, they did do some blockading in committee. Still, the Dems are going to be shown for what they are: obstructionists and blindly partisan.
