Howard Baker and Bob Dole where are you? Former Senate Majority Leader Dole made a visit to the Senate floor this week. He should have stayed. On Thursday, GOP “Leader” Mitch McConnell did what is being called one of the silliest things seen on the Senate floor in a long time. He blocked his own legislation and filibustered himself. Can it get any stupider than this? No one will ever confuse this moment with the work of Lyndon Johnson or Mike Mansfield.
