If the people look at the Senate and think "there goes off his rocker Byrd again" that does not help us. Not one bit, Americans need to see their democratic senators stand on the Senate floor and refuse to support Bush - if Byrd continues to obstruct Senate procedings, they will not get to see it.
While Byrd makes for great entertainment, I'd rather people get mad when their senator, who promised to stand shoulder to shoulder with the President against terrorism, will not support him in this.

I disagree. Byrd is impressing no one, nobody will be swayed from what they already believe by his tirade, and each delay and obstruction makes the whole Democrat party look bad -- why do you think Daschle is trying so hard to end this filibuster? As one of Rush's favorite maxims has it, "When your opponent insists on making a fool of himself, get out of the way and let him."
You seem not to get it .....Byrd is out of control.....the RATS are pulling their hair out.....they want this issue OFF THE TABLE...
If night after night they show that dottering old fool standing on the Senate floor screaming ......... Pretty....Pretty.....Pretty ....it will help us.
Byrd becomes the face of the Democratic Party!

You wonder what kind of government we deserve when ANY person of ANY party is elected for forty years or more. I am speaking of Byrd, Thurmond and the rest of them that are working on forty years. Give 'em time.
Think of all the deals, the pork, and most to win themselves re-election. The country is secondary to their power grab.
With campaign finance reform, no person can mount a challenge to any of these people. Without money how can any newcomer get his or her message out.
Just look at the people in the Senate and House who are there term after term after term. It is not a recipe for good government. It's a disaster waiting to happen. Bring back term limits for all of them.
We deserve better government than we are getting.
