An old fashioned filibuster: Mr. Sanders goes to Washington

You might want to check out CSPAN.  Independent Senator Bernie Sanders has just begun hour number EIGHT of a filibuster over the tax cut/unemployment extension deal.  He's not at the Jimmy Stewart stage of collapsing at his desk, but it's a rare thing to see a REAL filibuster instead of the THREAT of a filibuster (ie: go ahead and try to get 60 votes for this thing to avoid me talking all day long.)
