American Exceptionalism: Dumpster Diving Eagle

So last night, the House was supposed to vote on their version of the BBB legislation, and then something happened: K-Mac decided to filibuster it.

It’s true that the House does NOT have a filibuster mechanism, but the Speaker and the Minority Leader have some sort of professional courtesy that allows them to speak for an unlimited time (and I’m not making this up: they call it a Magic Minute). Anyway, K-Mac decided to filibuster, er, magic minute the bill.

Hilarity ensued:

It started Thursday night, at 8:38 p.m., and ended this morning, at 5:10 a.m., some 8 hours and 32 minutes later.

The reviews are in!

UPDATE: Democrats NOT in disarray –

As I write this, the House passed the $1.75 trillion Build Back Better Act, 220 to 213. And again I am reminded that Nancy Pelosi is probably the best Speaker of the House in American History, and certainly the best in my lifetime. Passing that Bill is a helluva accomplishment. Add that to the previous two bills (Covid Relief and the Infrastructure bills) and in this congress alone, she and the Democrats will have passed $5T Ameros for Americans. Brava!

It will now head for consideration in the Senate by Joe Manchin.

    Only one D voted against it, and based on what I’ve read, he’s a whackadoodle Blue Dog anyway, so eff him. However, that’ll give Tiger Beat on the Potomac all the reason they need to continue their “Dems In Disarray™!” narrative and speculate on how this will benefit the Trumplicans (which is why we can’t have nice things).

  2. If Curtsey Sinema flounces up and perkily gives a thumbs down again; getting yelled at in the bathroom is gonna be a much more common experience, along with getting yelled at everywhere else.

    But I expect you’re right Coal Joe LiebManchin will probably find that there are gasp things that will help people who aren’t millionaires and the majority of the money doesn’t go to a campaign to Burn Mor Chikn’ Coal, and find his inner MAGAt again.

    One of the best and deepest burns I’ve seen from a Democrat was from Jamie Raskin who said, “It is a feat of epic proportions to speak for four hours straight and not produce a single memorable phrase, original insight or even a joke. McCarthy thinks he is a wit but so far he has proved he is only half right.” I’m an official member of the Jamie Raskin fan club now…

    • Wel it was a joke…a very long-form unfunny one, but a joke nonetheless. Did he read ay Dr Seuss? Maybe Fled “Zodiac” Cruz could give him tips on not understanding literature meant for four-year-olds …

    Oh, that’s what all those clips of him spouting bs were about. That poor guy behind him, in the green suit (green?!?) got wore plumb out, even took off his mask, finally, while he rode that one out. Look for him, he looks so very, um, over it, I guess.

    That really drives the R’s crazy. It should be said more often to every one of them. But leave out probably.
