Exhibit A: why we need to abolish the Senate

Just read this. Seriously, what purpose does the Senate serve? Name one constructive thing that they do. I dare you.

    Hard to argue for their performance right now, that’s for sure. But just because it is broken doesn’t mean it should be tossed out. The answer is to elect better Senators.

    I know, I know, I’m not holding my breath either. Maybe we should adapt that old Vietnam War era maxim: “We must burn down the Senate in order to save it!”

    I’m pulling for O’Connell to win in DE. Perhaps that will be the Senate’s just dessert.

  2. Better senators are mythical creatures like leprechauns, unicorns and Super Bowl winning Browns quarterbacks.

    As for the senate itself, they provide blog fodder. Tengrain, pay up.

  3. They excrete CO2, which plants need to live. They keep corporate lobbyists off the street….

    But yeah, mostly blog-fodder. But they sometimes write their own punchlines!

    It could be worse.

    The Canadian Senate’s tenure is for life, or 75 years — whichever comes first — and only things like treason, not attending for two consecrative parliamentary sessions, going bankrupt, become the subject of a foreign power, or tendering one’s resignation ends that tenure.

    Which may explain why many Canadians refer to their Senate as Jurassic Park.

    “…the fastest Lame Duck President in all US history” Perfectly put.

    Good thing Clinton didn’t win, she would have been, as Barry’s minions were fond of saying ‘too distracting’.

    Besides, she had a spine.

    Your as Weak as Water!

    She certainly proved herself to be as bloodthirsty as her testosterone-laden Senate colleagues. If she wanted to use her spine for the betterment of the country, she should have stayed in the Senate and helped motivate her Democratic colleagues to get it up for something other than a needless war in Iraq. Her presidential campaign was a complete waste of time and opportunity for her to lay the groundwork for single-payer and a host of other issues that we care about.

    But you keep holding onto that President Hillary dream, Mr. Burns! She’s got that Clinton magic, after all!
