In light of Ted Cruz's recent faux filibuster, I decided to I look up the origins of the unusual word. It comes from the Spanish "filibustero" with origins stemming from words like privateer and pirate. Just as I suspected, the term "filibuster" was coined by a MAN named Albert G. Brown in 1853. But that's not important. What IS important is that he was male. I knew it had to be named by a man.
If you had asked a woman to name a procedure in which one is allowed to talk for as LONG as one wants about WHATEVER one wants, without interruption, effectively keeping anything at all from actually being accomplished, she would have called it "Better Than Sex".
Note from Anonymiss: By the way, if this sounds familiar, I drudged it up from a post I wrote in March about Rand Paul and just changed the names a bit. If it doesn't sound familiar, ignore than last sentence and bask in my timely originality :)
