Remember this little doozy?
Just watch the Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell, while playing his standard game of Senate Cloture Chess, actually get out-maneuvered, and has to actually filibuster his own damn Bill.
Simply amazing. Due to "extra-controversial" situation as he puts it, Minority Leader McConnell, asks the Majority to please raise the Cloture threshold to 60, for this simple majority spending Bill, that he himself proposed just a few minutes ago. It's not that it was seriously proposed or anything.
Mitch McConnell: Self-Filibuster
Jon Stewart -- Dec 13, 2012
And it's not like paying our National Bills actually matters or anything.
It's enough to "give a person whiplash."
JUST TAKE THE DAMN VOTE ALREADY!
And if you want to obstruct it, you had DAMN WELL be ready to explain to America WHY? You know have to TALK ABOUT IT. In front of the TV Cameras and everything.
Explain why -- your Minority Opinion -- is so DAMN important you must grind the wheels of Congress to a halt. On issue after issue after issue ... again and again and again.
If only we had an opportunity to change the Senate rules to put the Majority Opinion, back in the Call-the-Vote drivers seat ...
