The Senate Byrd Defended

Dana Milbank says something that I have been thinking all week. All of this celebration of Robert Byrd's fierce defense of the Senate and its institutional prerogatives is damned depressing. I really have no opinion on Byrd as a human being or as a Senator but his colleagues' praise for Byrd's defense of a supremely dysfunctional and anti-democratic institution is tough to stomach.
