AP Drops The F-Bomb

(AP)  MADISON – Democrats kept the Wisconsin Assembly up overnight with a droning filibuster in another desperate attempt to block the Republican governor’s bold plan to strip public sector workers of nearly all of their bargaining rights.

Needs more pro-Republican slant. Not only is this a “desperate attempt” — a line right outt’ve a partisan press release — but when Democrats do it we can suddenly call the filibuster by name. This is the first time in about five years that I’ve seen the AP get any more specific about a filibustered bill than saying that it failed to move to the floor, fell short of the number of votes necessary for passage or etc.
