Heads Up

In the next two years watch for stories in the MSM painting the filibuster as obsolete. Now that the Republicans are the minority in the Senate, the filibuster is an important weapon against big government schemes the socialists think up. The left will launch a full on propaganda war against the filibuster to weaken the Republicans’ resolve to use it.

My guess is the left will win this one. Politicians are like water falling down a mountain: they find the path of least resistance. If the MSM make filibuster mean obstruction, thwarting the will of the people and general nastiness, the Republicans will collapse.

Defining the terms of the debate determines the outcome of the debate and for the last century the left has been masterly at this. The word liberal used to mean pro-individual rights and free markets. The greatest political move in American history came when the socialists took the name of their enemy.

Watch for the campaign to make filibuster a dirty word.

The only way I see the GOP using a filibuster is if Bush completely abandons the party by ignoring his veto pen (not impossible).

It's too bad the GOP does not have the testicular fortitude the Dems have.

I'm sorry you did not find different ways to earn money on my blog, Askinstoo. I've noticed this blog lacks that myself.

Your feedback has been noted and will be discussed at the next board meeting.

Myrhaf,
You know "askinstoo" is an automated blog messenger? I got a few messages from him over on my blog some time ago (that's why I added the security to my comments).

Although I loved your response. ;)
