When will we Filibuster Against War?

Sen. Jim Bunning probably imagined himself as Jimmy Stewart last week when he conducted a filibuster to block appropriations for an extension of unemployment benefits to millions of cash strapped US workers. In Mr Smith Goes to Washington, Stewart plays a courageous representative who put himself on the line before caving into the politics of corruption.

Bunning’s stunt would have been better played out in opposition of where the money really is: gargantuan spending for war including a new “defense supplemental” appropriation.
