Filibusters make for strange bedfellows

March 26, 2015 Rich Arenberg, Adjunct Lecturer in Public Policy and Political Science, wrote an article in The Conversation about filibusters.

American humorist Will Rogers once quipped, "This country has come to feel the same when Congress is in session as when the baby gets hold of a hammer."

Today the "hammer" seems to be the Congressional filibuster even though Congress doesn't seem to exactly know what to do with this tool and often appears to be aiming for the foot.
