Socialist Gasbag From Vermont Blathers On For 8.5 Hours

Yes, this is the kind of thing that qualifies as a smash hit on C-SPAN.

Don't worry, I won't post the video.
WASHINGTON — Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders fought President Barack Obama's proposed tax cut compromise with a lengthy speech in the Senate.

He started at 10:24 a.m. ET and ended at 7 p.m.

Sanders, 69, an independent who usually sides with Democrats, said it was unconscionable to increase the national debt "by giving tax breaks to millionaires and billionaires who don't need it."

Sanders noted he'd been repetitious in making his points.
