So the Republicans along with last days on the public tit (directly class) Senator Lincoln and just to be an asshole Senator Pryor voted to filibuster a defense authorization bill. What do you hear? Crickets. That's what. You can tell because crickets don't lie.
Now imagine that a Republican Congress stuffs a defense bill with all kinds o shit. Tax cuts. Special favors for Blackwater. Easier torture rules. You know, the usual stuff.
Now just imagine that a Democratic minority filibusters and the filibuster is sustained. What do you think you would hear? Sat what? Can't hear the crickets now can you?
