Turning Republicans into heroes

Jerry Stratton, July 16, 2007

Jesus Christ, Harry, whatever happened to September? If the Republicans successfully filibuster this and the war continues to turn around, you’ve just turned every filibustering Republican into a visible hero of democracy, an honest-to-god stand-up Boris Yeltsin.

As it stands today, filibustering is a boring procedural move. Return it to actually having to filibuster, and it’s an exciting stand against authority. You’re actually going to make the Republicans cool.
