  •  Protecting minority rights is one thing (0+ / 0-)

    Completely obstructing the business of the Senate is another entirely.  Never in history has the filibuster been used in this way.  I wrote a diary on it a few weeks ago.  Again, it is one thing to protect the minority's rights and another to allow the minority to dominate the majority by throwing sand into the gears of government.  All I can say is thank goodness the Democratic Caucus has 60 members, otherwise nothing at all would get done.
