Economist article mentioning THE Bob LaFollette

I got one of the emails that I love receiving:

“I read this in The Economist about filibuster reform.  They had a chart mentioning the greatest filibusters of all time.  Robert M. LaFollette was mentioned not once, but twice.  It turns out that throwing a brass spittoon at your fellow peers in Congress is a good way to pass legislation.  Thought our fellow Bobs would get a kick out of this.  The link is listed below.
