This week, in partnership with CNN, we at TIME are beginning a series of reports on “Broken Government.” It will look at the reasons that it has become so difficult to get anything done in Washington, and some ways we might fix the problem.

Regular readers of Swampland probably have already guessed what solution I’ve proposed.

UPDATE: I hereby appoint Commenter (and fellow filibuster enthusiast) Ivy_B the Deputy Parliamentarian of Swampland.

She points us to this on NPR. Chalk up another endorsement of the Make Them Filibuster campaign, this one from Darrell West, vice president and director of Governance Studies at the Brookings Institution.
