    Wasn't meant to be. It was designed to resist the "tyranny of the majority."

    Today though the Senate has just one minority constituency: the rich. Those who can bribe. Too many Senators are comfortable with being bribed, and that's why they like those arcane rules. They give the elite power to make the interests of the other 300 million Americans irrelevant.

    Sunday mornings are more beautiful without Meet the Press.
