Representation Through Humiliation

Headline Scan: The Progress Edition

Much hubbub today about the Senate actually doing something today by agreeing to preserve the filibuster rules and clearing the path for votes on three judicial nominees. Well, yahoo, but don't get your hopes up just yet centrists. Because, you see, the Senate hasn't really made any actual progress. Moreover, they've merely cleared out of the way a disagreement that had been disguising their lack of work as steps being taken to produce work. Unfortunately, some effort is occasionally required if you want to be a Senator. I weep for them.
