Passionate. Driven. Soaring. Eloquent. Those are the words people use for amazing speeches. Speeches that stir the soul and fire the mind. And they are not the words for Sen. Tom Cotton’s speech about the filibuster today.
The words you’d use for this? Genius. Incredible. Damning. And of course: Will be ignored by CNN and the rest of the media.
It consists entirely of Chuck Schumer’s past remarks about the filibuster. And it is, to choose one perfect word: DEVASTATING.

“The Senate is not a majoritarian body”
This is what you do. This is how you do it. The media can try to ignore it, but the people hear it loud and clear.
