Harry Reid has just issued a press release complaining about Senator Jim Bunning’s lunatic filibuster against the extension of unemployment benefits to those suffering through this awful recession.

A press release.

I will not link to it: you could probably write it yourselves, if you had a degree in phony political vitriol and free-range gaseosity.

Instead, I’ll join Karen Tumulty in calling for these bozos to force the issue: Make Bunning and the Republicans actually filibuster. I mean, if you really care about American workers, you should be willing to risk some all-night inconvenience. The people whose unemployment and COBRA insurance are running out are experiencing far worse.
