  •  The World's Worst Deliberative Body (7+ / 0-)

    The only thing more appalling than the Senate's utter dysfunctionality is the Majority's total lack of interest in reforming the body.

    I suppose we should be mildly pleased that we tend to hear less blather about the grand traditions of the institution these days.

    But reforming the Senate will probably involve getting rid of most of today's Senators....including the Democrats.

    Tell your Congressperson and Senators: Vote NO on the Obama-McConnell-Boehner Tax Giveaways!

        They pontificate, and burn up the clock.

        They disgust me.

        Quite frankly, it is high time the US Senate was deemed a terrorist organisation, no other organisation even comes close to inflicting that amount of damage on the American people

        We do not forgive our candidates their humanity, therefore we compel them to appear inhuman
