Passionate. Driven. Soaring. Eloquent. Those are the words that people use for amazing speeches. Speeches that stir the soul and ignite the mind And those are not the words for Senator Tom Cotton’s speech on obstructionism today.
The words you would use for this? Genius. Incredible. Curse. And of course: It will be ignored by CNN and the rest of the media.
It consists entirely of Chuck Schumer’s past comments on filibuster. And it is, for choosing a perfect word: DEVASTATING.

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