Republican Pity Party Fails

Why does Washington have such a short-term memory problem? Do those, hopefully hoarse, GOP senators really think that their 40-hour talkathon wouldn’t be seen for exactly what it was — an incredible waste of time that superceded more important issues. Oh wait, I forgot — this wasn’t like Mr. Smith’s epic filibuster — or Strom Thurmond’s for that matter. Most Republican Senators were at home, asleep — just like the rest of us.

A record of 168-4 is pretty good — far better than the Clinton administration’s successful judicial nomination record. So much for the Republican Pity Party. Now can we get back to the country’s businesss? And we wonder why the majority of Americans don’t bother to vote.
