More evidence of our dysfunctional government

An Alabama Senator put a blanket hold on all Presidential nominees. Why, one might ask? Turns out it all comes down to pork. If there were some actual principle involved for what is considered an extreme action by a Senator, I'd at least understand it, even if I disagreed with the principle in question. However, this is more like a heist, where an elected official is trying to extort more coin for his state regardless of the consequences. Now, will stuff like this get the public pissed off, or will this simply become the "new normal" of governing? If the latter, we're in for a very long, bumpy, unpleasant ride.
