There truly is a video or a tweet for every occasion. Twitter didn't exist in 1963 but C-Span did and this is from their archives. If Dr. King were alive today he could be saying these exact same words...
This just broke on The Rachel Maddow Show just before her handoff to Lawrence O'Donnell. The Senate was supposed to have the week off next week. Hell, why not? They just had three weeks off two weeks ago, why not burn...
Personally, I think Chuck Schumer acted like an ass. After all, you don't rub somebody's nose in a publicly humiliating loss, especially when you need to work with them again in another 60 days. But boy, oh boy!, can...

I ain't as young as I used to be, or as quick, and so I had to take a little time to make sure I had this right before I wrote it up. But I double checked the video,...
