  •  The talking filibuster may work. (0+ / 0-)

    I too was skeptical at first, but as I thought about the talking filibuster I asked myself who wants to be the senator who speaks for their 35 minutes at 2am, 3am, 4am, 5am etc... day after day?  On Saturday?  On Sunday.

    I think fatigue will set in and the filibuster will end.  It may be doable to have a talking filibuster, but the main point is that it is so much more work then just saying you can't get 60 votes so let's move on to something else.
