Mugato: Filibusterering senators should be beaten to death.

If you ever want an excuse to shoot out your TV Elvis style just watch C-SPAN for 5 minutes.


Congressmen should be required to have their debates in the form of rap battles. MC Biden lays down the beat.

Throw in breakdancing.


Given the average age of a Senator, that would sound like a bowl of Rice Krispies.

Galloping Galoshes: Both parties are getting so extreme that the folks in the middle are getting mighty lonely.

LouDobbsAwaaaay: We don't need it to be eliminated. We just need it to be returned to the "filibuster", not the fake version where you just pretend to filibuster and everyone goes home for the day.


Agreed, the pussy ass-fillibuster is too easy to abuse. Your senate needs to do it right. Butt plugs/astronaut diapers, pee buckets/catheters, the whole deal. If it's worth fillibustering at all, it's worth doing right.

The Stealth Hippopotamus: Never happen. Remember you're only one election away from being the minority party you dont want to take away the only means of stopping bad legislation.

Same theory as the line item veto, great when our party is in power but can we take it away when we are out of power?


This. I have to explain this to every conservatard I speak with. The trick is, don't be a dick and over use it. The GOP did. They got modestly spanked for it on Nov. 6 too.
