Every Month Or So I Tell Myself We Cannot Go Any Lower In Our Political Discourse, And Every Month Or So I Am Proven Wrong.

This night I am torn. Half of me wants to thank my friends the teabaggers for the pure entertainment spectacle you are about to witness, half of me is terrified.

I want you to remember something as you watch this video clip. Due to the arcane rules of the United States Senate, pretty much any member of that body can stop any piece of legislation from moving forward. They do this by putting a secret, anonymous, "hold" on a bill, which basically means "you can't vote on this until I say it's OK" so.....pretty much any Senator could grind the whole place to a halt if they wanted to. Of course I'm sure that's not likely. Absurd even. About as absurd as it would have seemed 20 years ago to make every bill in the Senate overcome a filibuster.

Now I'd like you to meet Christine O'Donnell. Ms. O'Donnell, with the backing of the teabaggers, recently became the Republican nominee for one of Delaware's US Senate seats. Turns out she was also at one time a regular guest on Bill Maher's old TV show, "Politically Incorrect"

She's the one with the big 90's hair. She's also one election away from being a United States Senator.

Roll the tape......
