Daily Kos has a petition to force Senators who want to filibuster to actually stand up there and filibuster. I figure if they feel strongly enough to filibuster something, the least they can do is stand up there and explain to the American public why they are filibustering.

    They should all have to follow Bernie’s example and lay it to the opposition. Maybe the GOP could read some economics text books while they’re up there and educate themselves simultaneously. Then the Dems can read some self-help books about taking charge and sticking to your guns. Hmmm…

    I also signed it and I think it is (almost literally) the least we can do to fix this broken rule.
