Needed: A Real Filibuster

Spoons and Curmudgeonly & Skeptical have it exactly right: the Senate Republicans need to quit being spineless turds and hold a real filibuster, like in Mr. Smith Goes To Washington. Instead, as one commenter put, no-one is even willing to make “Ted Kennedy miss happy hour at the Drunken Clam”.

One other alternative is to simply use recess appointments. The Senate is out of town right now and President Bush could simply appoint them and be done with it until the next Congress.
