Filibustering my ass!

If you’ve been paying attention you may have noticed that the wonderfully acerbic and direct Elizabeth Warren was withdrawn as the nominee to run the new Consumer Protection Bureau.  Instead the President nominated someone else, Richard Cordray, whom the Republicans also won’t approve.

I guess the President had just had enough of GOP obstructionism and decided he’d use a Recess Appointment to circumvent their bullshit confirmation tomfoolery.  So the useless ass grabbers decided to use the time honored tradition of grabassery called Filibustering.  And it ain’t like Mr. Smith Goes to Washington boys and girls!

No, filibustering in the modern Senate  is where the Senator doesn’t even have to be present.  His or her lackeys can preside over meaningless hearings that technically keep the Senate in session blocking the President’s ability to even complete Recess Appointments.  So while our faithless GOP Senators (and that’s all we have in AZ) are sunning their leathery wrinkled bodies while watching the attractive young nanny swim in the pool with his third set of kids via the 3rd wife and sipping an adult beverage in St. Tropez, the President is stuck grinding his teeth trying to get some fucking work done.

It’s time to get some Filibuster reform completed. I want to see their lazy old white asses standing up there the entire time they are filibustering.  Yet another thing to motivate me to get out the vote for Pres. O and Dems in 2012.

    I don’t disagree with a word you say, which isn’t why I’m commenting. You mentioned Arizona politicians, so it’s as good a time as any for this link:

    Lloyd Dangle, who used to draw the “Troubletown” comic, did it as a cover illustration for the Tucson Weekly and won an award—along with Jim Nintzel—from the Association of Alternative Newsmedia. I think he deserves it, but I was always a fan of his.
