Bring on the Filibuster

If only Harry Reid would follow The Nation's advice in this matter we might actually get the legislation we deserve. Unfortunately, he isn't likely to force Senators Coburn and Graham to pull on their Depends and stand at their podiums for hours on end filibustering Obama's latest Treasury department nominee. It's so much easier and more convenient to simply put forward a procedural filibuster these days, and since the soft spoken Nevadan doesn't seem to possess a spine, they'll get to keep filibustering without having to say a word.
