Once in a blue moon

It's rarer and rarer these days, but the Republicans still occasionally do something that makes me smile:
Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell made good on his promise of retribution against Democrats for their slow pace in confirming judicial nominees by bringing the Senate to a halt Wednesday.

He forced a clerk to read every word of the 491-page global warming bill.

If the Republicans did nothing in the next Congress except force clerks to read every word of every bill, I'd vote a straight party-line ballot for them.
