Only Democrats could pull failure out of an overwhelming majority in both houses of Congress and the Presidency.
My suggestion to Senator Harry Reid: If the motherfuckers want to filibuster the economic recovery bill, make'em do so. Make some son of a bitch have to wear pampers and an IV for days and days standing up there babbling. If it was good enough for Senator Lyndon B. Johnston when he was Senate Majority Leader making dimwit Dixiecrats like Strom Thurmond stand up there for days at a time filibustering civil rights legislation, it's good enough for you. Unless you don't got the guts to make the Rethugs look like obstructionists who hate America. In which case, step down and let someone who has more spine than a fucking jellyfish take the reins. Geezus fucking christ, man, get some goddamned *BALLS*.
