energy filibuster

Woohoo!

Democrats successfully filibustered the freakin' Energy Bill ("No Lobbyist Left Behind"). I just wish my Democratic senator, Mark Dayton, had voted to maintain the filibuster. 13 Dems from farm states, and 6 Republicans from the west and northeast, crossed party lines on this one; pretty cool, but... At least they can't paint this as purely a party lines thing.

Hm, does my joy at this news mean I'm still a new Englander? Maybe...

New Englander? Because of the ethanol thing? I think it's possible to oppose pork in one's own state if you think the pork is for a bad reason. :)
