So Much for That

Remember that middling, eminently reasonable, non-threatening energy bill I mentioned the other day? Well, the Republicans, in their inimitable jihadi style, are filibustering it.

Remind me again, what the point is of compromising with these people? Oh right. 60 votes in the Senate. That means that 40 Senators, representing potentially as little as 1/4th of America’s population, get to decide what’s best for the rest of us. Awesome.
