Binro the Heretic Standing up for thirteen hours without leaning on anything or straying off the topic, surrounded by smug assholes who only win elections because they've gerrymandered the districts to unfairly represent the smug asshole vote. None of them would care enough about about any issue to do what you're doing and even if they did, I doubt they'd be capable of it.

TeenerTot She did it! They missed the vote deadline!
Until they have a "special session," of course.
But for now, she's my hero.
baleen 11 hours of talking and standing without being able to lean on anything or sit down.
