Senate Republicans set a new record for filibusters. They didn't just break the record, they are destroying it with their constant foot-dragging.
There have been 72 filibusters so far, beating the old record of 68. But 110th Congress is not even half over. Republicans are on track to more than double the old record, an accomplishment of delay and obstruction unparalleled any time in history.
This is the most underreported story in Washington. President Bush complains that Congress isn't doing their job, yet it's his allies in the Senate who are gumming up the works.
