    Wow. Mitch McConnell is losing it. He calls for an up or down vote and then filibusters the dare he gave the democrats.

    I read about that Friday. If they are to have any chance in the future, they need to overhaul their leadership in the Senate. Not only did it make McConnell look foolish, be has become the brunt of jokes all weekend long in the media.
    "Of all tyrannies, a tyranny sincerely exercised for the good of its victims may be the most oppressive. It may be better to live under robber barons than under omnipotent moral busybodies. The robber baron's cruelty may sometimes sleep, his cupidity may at some point be satiated, but those who torment us for our own good will torment us to no end for they do so with the approval of their own conscience."
    C S Lewis
