"Threaten" ?

How can you threaten someone when you have no power against them? Rand filibustered the Brennan appointment and...Brennan still got appointed.

I like when he filibusters, it makes a point, but I wouldn't call it a "threat." That's like wishful thinking: AS IF he could do anything to stop or punish them. Even if he elicits a firestorm of phone calls to Senators...the Senators won't listen...they never do.

Doesn't anyone see what a sham Congress is?
