    That was not a filibuster.

    It was a retarded version of plain old grandstanding.

    And nobody gives a shit about that bullshit except truly and tragically retarded uber liberoidal assholes.

    Thus, the OP.

    No, that was a filibuster.

    The Dems cave every time the Republicans threaten to filibuster. It's nice to see someone with the conviction to actually stand and talk for eight and a half hours without taking a break.

    The Dims do cave a lot. But no, that was NOT a filibuster. It was a long-winded monologue, but it was not intended to block a vote nor did it significantly affect consideration of any vote.

    And it is more than passing odd that it takes a damn socialist to do even that much.

    Frankly, I'd be happy if a bunch of GOP Senators would start going that route. But not by such half-hearted measures as a 9 hour "speech." I mean a real old-fashioned filibuster. As I have said before, I am a FAN of gridlock if that's what it takes to shut down the Obama/liberal Democrat Parody agenda.

    For the most part, that's exactly what conservatives should be seeking.

    When you can logically or factually fault ONE thing Sen. Sanders has said, let me know.

    Until then, all your Party of NO sour grapes and smokescreen is just a waste of time.
