So... this filibuster thing. That happened.

But how about one of the bright spots of the week: President Obama's second inaugural address? We all liked that, right? Let's talk about that with SUNY History Prof. Ian Reifowitz, author of Obama’s America: A Transformative Vision of Our National Identity.

Better than that dang ol' filibuster!

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.

    An op-ed from my friend and fellow Newtowner MaryAnn Murtha:

    You know also that Newtown is suffering. A man shot and killed 20 of our schoolchildren and six of our educators in a matter of minutes on Dec. 14. Since then, green and white ribbons, the colors of Sandy Hook Elementary School, adorn our jackets, as we console each other and proclaim that we are Newtown Strong. Our shared grief is so thick you can almost hold it in your hands. As a town we weep unexpectedly and openly, just as our governor, Dannel Malloy, a tough former assistant district attorney from Brooklyn, choked up as he spoke during the opening of Connecticut’s legislative session. As one woman told me, standing by the cucumbers in the grocery store, tears welling in her eyes, “You just never know when it’s gonna hit ya.”..

    In 2001, al-Qaeda’s attacks on New York, Washington and Pennsylvania were initially dubbed the attack on the World Trade Center. But the folks mourning the attacks on the Pentagon and Flight 93 spoke up, and the moniker morphed into 9/11.

    The media were sensitive; citizens were sensitive. Let’s do that again.

    Newtown, Conn., would rather hear “I don’t want to see another 12/14” than “I don’t want to see another Newtown.” Further, a Commission on 12/14 sounds better than a Commission on Sandy Hook. I suspect that the people who live in Newtown, Pa., and Sandy Hook, N.J., feel the same way.

    By naming the tragedy 12/14, we honor the 26 victims of the Sandy Hook School shooting, their families and their town. 12/14. Think it. Say it. Help Newtown heal.

  •  Some Filibuster Reform Post-Scripts (2+ / 0-)
    Recommended by:
    Ian Reifowitz, David Waldman

    First, before I get into my post-scripts, let me give a shout out to David Waldman, who has been all over this from the beginning.  A HUNDRED KUDOS to Kagro X who has kept us all informed on this subject and helped beat back the pundits spouting the conventional wisdom on this subject which was often distorted or wrong.  Also, a personal thanks to David for last night's diary on the subject which helped talk me down from my initial rage.

    Now on to my Post-Scripts, one vitriolic and one appreciative.  First the vitriol:

    I will remember this day for a long, long time.  I will remember it, so that everytime I hear Harry Reid complain about Republican obstruction in the months to come, which he will do, I can let him have it.  Not just a simple "I told you so", but a thorough rebuke in which I will tell him to sit down, shut up and stop complaining because he and he alone missed the chance we were given.  I will offer no sympathy to Harry, only disgust at his naivete.

    Now that that's off my chest, here's the appreciative post-script:

    I think we have to give an extra special recognition to Senators Merkley and Udall who without their years of pushing for real filibuster reform and their ability to secure 51 Senate Votes in support, even these small reforms would not have happened.  So Kudos to these two Senators who I'm sure will not be giving up the fight, and neither should we.

    hope which will fail the first time Lucy McConnell grabs
    the football from Charlie Brown Reid. A lot of the problem
    probably comes from the fact that most of the Senate is
    unchanged. (I never thought much about term limits but...)
