Senate GOP Threatens to Filibuster The Seating of Al Franken
Let us hope the Republicans filibuster Al Franken. Let's hope they filibuster against him around the clock -- 24/7 -- and that two or three Repubs die of heart attacks during the process. That would give the Democrats a filibuster-proof majority, whether or not Al Franken is seated. The Dems could then set about doing the work of the people, repairing the monumental damage the GOP has done to this country over the past eight years. And the GOP could repair to the dust-bin of history, along with the Whig Party, where it belongs.
