Boehner Fights Climate Bill With Filibuster, Brightly Colored Poster

As I reported yesterday, House Minority Leader John Boehner has seemingly traded in his old talking point on cap and trade legislation for a blue chart with brightly colored words on it.

Moments ago, he brought his new weapon to the House floor.

Unfortunately for Boehner, it doesn’t seem to be changing anybody’s mind with respect to the Waxman-Markey bill. But more unfortunately for its supporters, he’s also poised to drag this debate on for hours by reading a recently incorporated 300 page amendment to the bill out loud. A pseudo-filibuster, if you will, to delay the vote as long as possible.
