Alrighty, if anyone still doubts that the Right considers the American people, the Beltway Media and the world at large to be a bunch of sub-literate, ignorant rubes please pull your head out of your ass and pay attention. Sen. Jim Inhofe (R-Okla.) is leading the charge to demand a 60-vote threshold to end debate on Chuck Hagel’s appointment as Secretary of Defense. This is a god-damned filibuster, but Inhofe and his humps in waiting aren’t calling it a filibuster. They are going to call it Coca-Cola, blip-blip, popcorn or Tuesday, but not a filibuster. So not only are we lying about the filibuster, but we are lying about lying about the filibuster.Harry Reid thinks it is a “shame.” I think Harry is a pathetic old fool. When filibuster reform was possible he didn’t have to take Mitch McConnell by the dick and go skipping down the Senate’s center aisle with him singing “Kumbaya.” But he did. Now the small amount of reform agreed upon by a dupe and a devil is a shabby and empty promise.
We need Chuck Hagel as Secretary of Defense, but we need better leadership in the Senate more.
