Why the Filibuster Is Target for Impatient Democrats: QuickTake
Once again, the party in control of the U.S. Senate is feeling frustrated by the filibuster. That’s the prerogative enjoyed by the minority party to demand never-ending debate on legislation, thus thwarting its passage. Filibusters once required senators to stand and speak for hours, but since the 1970s, bills can grind to a halt at the mere threat of one: Almost all bills are doomed unless supported by the 60-vote supermajority ending a filibuster requires. Of the more than 1,700 filibusters si

Stephen Colbert Defends Meghan Markle, Slams British Royals’ Jeffrey Epstein Ties
CBSOn Monday, the late-night hosts (sans Trevor Noah, who is sadly off this week) all addressed the news that captivated 17 million Americans: Oprah Winfrey’s primetime interview with Harry and Meghan Markle, who exited the British royal family over what the two characterized as a campaign of gaslighting, neglect, and racist treatment. Jimmy Kimmel mocked the royal family’s “inbreeding” past, while Stephen Colbert began his riff on a slightly more playful note.As to the portion of the interview where Markle alleged that she’d never looked up Harry online (yeah right!), the Late Show host cracked, “What! Let me introduce you to this thing called Google. Over there, I think it’s called ‘Lorry.’ It’s full of useful information—for instance, it turns out your husband knew Princess Di. That might’ve been a hint that this was going to be a rough gig.”Then, the kicker: “Also, while you’re googling, you might want to try the combo ‘Andrew,’ ‘Island,’ and ‘Epstein.’ It’ll give you an idea what the royal family is OK with.”Read more at The Daily Beast.

The case for issuing Covid-19 vaccine passports
The world's Covid-battered economy could benefit from a system identifying those who'd been vaccinated against Covid-19, writes David A. Andelman. Although there are valid ethical concerns about creating two-tier societies, a Covid passport would allow business venues to screen for admission and perhaps also persuade countries still barring visitors to admit those who've been vaccinated.

Jimmy Kimmel Rips ‘Inbreeding’ Royals’ Racist Meghan Markle Attack
ABCLike at least a decent number of the more than 17 million Americans who tuned in to watch Oprah Winfrey’s dramatic sit-down with Prince Harry and Meghan Markle Sunday night, Jimmy Kimmel initially had “no interest” in watching the special. “Then my wife put it on and I was like, ‘Wait, rewind that! What did he say? Prince Charles is an animal!’”Joking that the event “will surely go down in history as the most shocking gender reveal party of all time,” Kimmel said, “If only there was a way these Oprah specials could vaccinate us too, it would be amazing.” “Everyone thinks marrying a prince is like a fairy tale,” he added. “Turns out, it’s not. Meghan Markle said that when she joined the royal family they took away her passport, driver’s license, and keys. ‘Welcome to the royal family. Please remove your belt and get ready for a cavity search.’”Read more at The Daily Beast.
