You've seen it. The ad that shows the clip from the black and white movie "Mr. Smith Goes to Washington." And then the guy comes out and says, "Hi. I'm a Republican, a common sense Republican."

FactCheck.org has an interesting article up about the ad and the filibuster's not-so-illustrious history. Be sure to check out the sidebar letter from the president of People for the American Way for an equally interesting counterpoint.
