Man, did this author BLOW IT!

Don't they realize that the founding fathers wrote the U.S. Constitution precisely to make it hard to control the Senate? The founders wanted to restrain momentary Pelosian majorities in the House of Representatives with regional power in the upper house. They set the controls to make the U.S. almost ungovernable -- by design.

He attributes a Senate RULE to the U.S. Constitution.

Quite incorrect.

I knew a FReeper would catch this.

It reminds me of the useful idiots who say that our system of checks and balances means political parties checking one another.
